As part of the emerging plans for community-owned renewable energy project we are looking to get the opinions of local residents on the idea and give us some feedback on which areas of life in West Kilbride you would like to see benefit from the revenue that this project would generate. We would be very grateful if you could take a few moments to complete a brief survey

We're delighted to add to our site some videos produced by our friends at LEAP (Local Energy Action Project) based in Lochwinnoch. They are a great resource to help you with your DIY energy efficiency measures, so no excuses! If you want any more advice or if you've used them to draught proof a few doors and windows then let us know!

Your Community Print Now on Display
The giant community print created by the kids on the day of the fabulous Apple Harvest Food Festival is now on display in West Kilbride library. It looks fantastic, pop in and see it. Don't forget your library card so that you can support the library while you're there. If we don't use it we'll lose it!
TWK would like to thank Amanda from the Printmaker's Boutique without whom the print would never have seen the light of day. The Printmakers' Boutique is located in the one of the Craft Town Scotland studios at Happy Hills.
