Draught Busters Workshop in Deal

As you know we had to cancel the fair today but we were able to run the first of our 'draught busters' workshops today in the Town

We had a very full house with seven of us crowded in at Guy's small house in College Rd Deal to listen to Luci Ransome from Transition Glasglow.

Luci toook us through the all the practical tools in identifying draught issues (thermal camera or candle), what draughts are good, damp in building, options for doors and windows depending on their construction, making radiators more effective, tools and materials needed (which is relatively few - but we all liked the nail punch. Average cost for most homes £20-£50) and general good practise in floor and person coverings!

It was very much a practical session and great fun - we all learnt a great deal and were enthusied to get similar sessions going in the town.

If you are interested either in getting involved either as a 'buster' or your home needs some 'draught busting' please drop steve a line at

Big thanks to Luci for sharing her knowledge and skills (and Cake) with us and Guy for hosting and letting us loose on this back door and windows!

  1. I was there, thinking about my own draughty home as well as the Greenov project. This was a common sense approach and the hands on aspect was the best way to give all of us the confidence. Looking forward to finding ways of replicating the workshop. Big thank to Luci for the guidance, to Guy for hosting us, and the other team members for support and enthusiasm.
