Hot-Sun-Thermometer-300x295Friends of the Earth Scotland has warned that 2014 is going to be the hottest year on record. Dr Richard Dixon, Director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said,

“With the warmest spring ever and every month bar one above average so far, 2014 is on course to be the hottest year ever recorded in Scotland. This would mean that eight years since 2000 are in the top ten warmest since records began in 1910. Scotland’s weather is showing a very clear long-term trend of increasing temperatures, just as climate change scientists predict.”

Energy Advice Drop-InsPublic sessions providing energy advice are now scheduled in The Whiteinch Centre. There are energy advice drop-ins running the second Tuesday of every month from 10am-12pm where anyone with a query regarding their electricity/gas costs, heating systems, tariffs, supplier etc can pop in for some advice.

There is also a structured 2 hour workshop running the last Thursday of every month 10am-12pm (booking required) which gives a solid grounding in understanding how electricity and gas costs relate to energy use and takes the mystery out of meters, bills/costs, heating systems and electrical appliances.

The sessions are being run by Whiteinch and Scotstoun Housing Association Energy Advice Project. See the flyers below for more information.

Whiteinch_SnowdropsRecently we helped Whiteinch Community Council with their snowdrop planting in Victoria Park. The weather forecast hadn’t been great but it turned out to be a nice sunny Autumn day. Along with ourselves and Community Council members there were also volunteers from Friends of Victoria Park, about a dozen keen pupils from both St Paul’s Primary and Whiteinch Primary and a few other local people.

Everyone got stuck in and we managed to plant 5000 snowdrop bulbs in the park alongside the expressway. Thanks to everyone that got involved and to Action Earth who funded the project. We even got our photo in the Evening Times! Can’t wait until the Spring to see what they look like!
