The Big Lottery funded Green Prosperity project is having a one day launch event split over two wards in East Hull.

Under the banner of: “You’ve won the lottery, help us to help you cut costs and save money”.

We are inviting residents, community groups and interested parties to the launch event on: Tuesday 2nd of April at two community venues.

· 10am – 12pm Freedom Centre, Preston Road Village Centre, Southcoates East

· 2pm – 4pm Longhill Link-Up, Shannon Road, Longhill

Andy Steele, Green Prosperity’s Community Coordinator says “There will be a number of activities for all ages available on the day, including information on growing your own produce and why it can save you money, chicken and bee care and even a demonstration Eglu to look at! Everyone is welcome to come along and get involved.”

The event also includes: A number of free prize draws, giveaways, energy usage monitoring, recycling games and quizzes along with practical advice on how to save money on your energy bills and the opportunity to sign up for a free home energy survey.

The Child Dynamix Play Project will be providing children’s activities and games, including a bouncy castle, a penalty shoot-out competition, face painting and junk recycling.

On the Southcoates East Ward Hull City Council will have the community bus on site so residents can talk about any issues as well as a FREE dog chipping service from 11am to 1pm.

The event will also give residents the opportunity to sign up to a range of volunteering activities from working on the East Hull Community Farm to setting up and reading energy meters.

Andy Rees, Green Prosperity’s Volunteer Coordinator said; “People who volunteer feel a great sense of achievement and can really make a difference to their neighbour’s lives. The Green Prosperity project gives people the chance to sign up for a number of different activities for however many hours they can spare. All offers of help will be gratefully received.”
