Due to huge success and popular demand, the Formby insulation scheme, set up by the Energy Saving Trust and Formby Parish Council, has now been extended to 24th December.
The scheme was launched in August to encourage Formby residents to better insulate their homes in order to make Formby greener. Householders were offered loft and cavity wall insulation at the discounted price of just £74 each.
Ellie Abernethy, Manager of the Energy Saving Trust advice centre for Merseyside and Cheshire said: “The scheme was due to end on 31st October, but we’ve had such a high demand from Formby residents that the scheme installer, VNR Contracting, have agreed to extend the offer until 24th December. This is great news for Formby and I hope many more take the opportunity to get their homes properly insulated ready for winter”.
Chairman of the Parish Council, Mike Coles, said “Formby has a unique environment and residents have always shown tremendous initiatives when it comes to protecting its delicate balance. They include maintaining waste recycling levels to over 60%, promoting the need to maintain the water courses and investing in the appearance of the Village centre. This result is another great achievement for the community”.
