A range of roles

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Ashton Hayes has a band of 30-50 dedicated volunteers who regularly help with different aspects of their project. They try to harness the variety of skills available in their community and encourage everyone to participate by offering a wide range of opportunities to become involved, tailored to different people’s strengths and the needs of the project. They recognise that some people enjoy the technical aspects of carbon footprint calculations, while others have specialist knowledge and expertise relating to renewable energy. Others are more creative, and contribute by providing writing, photographic and film making skills which help to keep all residents informed of the group’s activities and share their journey with the outside world.
