The Ukrainian Refugee CrisisYou may or may not be aware that as a result of the Government scheme to host Ukrainian refugees there are currently eight families in Burbage who have offered accommodation. It became obvious at the start that most of prospective hosts were unaware of each other but following a post on the Burbage Notice Board Facebook page the Burbage Ukraine Network (BUN) was created, this is a support network currently consisting of the host families.The support starts at the pre-arrival stage ( matching , visas etc ) , goes through the Arrival stage ( transport, money, doctors etc ) and onto the Post arrival stage ( joining in the community , finding work etc)
Matching hosts with refugees is taking time. There are, however, two groups matched and good progress is being made with the application process. It is hoped that some refugees will arrive in the village in the near future.If you or someone you know in the village has put themselves forward as host and would like to join the network please ask them to get in touch with Tony Walker ( email@example.com) or 01672 810494.
Solar together WiltshireWiltshire Council is working with independent experts iChoosr and Swindon Borough Council to give homeowners the opportunity to invest in renewables through a group-buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage. This is a group-buying scheme which will offer solar panels with optional battery storage and EV charge points, as well as offering battery storage for residents who have already invested in solar panels and are looking to get more from the renewable energy they generate, as well as increase their independence from the grid.Given the current cost of living, significantly impacted by the surge in energy prices, we feel this scheme will be worth consideration from eligible households and help provide longer term savings.
