Nick says “I Do” lag my pipes!  Will you?

We’ve been saying #IDoDorset ….

over the last few months culminating in our ‘Will you say I do’ event in South Street, Dorchester in Climate Week.  You’ve been sending us your #IDoDorset selfies that capture environmentally friendly behaviour.

Nick from Dorchester is our lucky prize winner of a meal for two.  Nick is a member of the “Green Saints” Waste Less Spend Better group that meets in St Helen’s Road Dorchester.  Group members have been meeting regularly to learn how to save money and resources using our Transition Together manuals.  Read more here.

And here are a few of our favourite images from the campaign.
