Welcome to SeSaME

Sedgeberrow Sustainable and Manageable Energy Group

SeSaME aims to open up a treasure trove of renewable energy, informing, encouraging and supporting a sustainable village community exploring, and where possible, acting on the activities shown below

a) We seek to assist villagers in estimating their electricity consumption and give them advice about reducing it, where needed. We have electricity monitors to lend out to those villagers who want to check how useful they are before they spend their money on one. We will offer advice to villagers about reducing waste and improving the insulation of their property.

 b) We have investigated the best options for and the viability of a Generator harnessing the energy of the River Isbourne, liaising closely with the Village Flood Group. We had a site visit and consultation provided by the Sharenergy Co-operative, funded by the Marches Energy Agency, that revealed it not to be feasible.

c) We want to look at ways of maximizing solar panel use and facilitating a corporate village approach to fundraising and construction. We will support the Village Hall action plan, helping to look at all other alternative energy sources for the Hall.

d) We wish to liaise with regard to possible links between recreational woodland and coppicing for heating any future new public building, as was outlined in the Parish Plan.

e) We will maintain regular contact and information-sharing with other relevant Village Groups and our Parish Council. To that end we have assumed responsibility for the village website, www.sedgeberrow.com and are offering all village institutions the facility for entering and editing text on their own page. We wish to ensure that SeSaME’s Goals and proposed actions are incorporated into the next Parish Plan update. 

f) We will investigate other local sustainability schemes in the area (eg. Elmley Castle and Pershore) and publicise them.

g) We will maintain a website – www.sesame.me.uk

h) We have resurrected, now edit and produce a village newsletter, the Sedgeberrow Post, to ensure good communication within the village and all its institutions.

i) We co-ordinate Sedgeberrow Oil Buying Group that reduces heavy traffic into the village, provides reliable delivery, optimum prices and a levy that contributes to village costs.

j) We will conduct a survey of all households in the Village to establish both areas of need and past achievements of sustainable activity. The start date has now been designated and  the survey will begin on the 1st August 2013. It's taking place in partnership with Wychavon District Council and ActOnEnergy.
