Who we are

Who we are

Solutions for a Sustainable Future – A Community Action Group in it for the Long Haul..

(Charity no 1159816)

We are a Registered Charity that helps people to become more energy efficient, save money and reduce their carbon emissions.

Climate Change is real, happening right now, even in the UK; and it is a huge challenge. We know that this is a global problem and will only be solved by global action, but it is important to be active locally. Government should be leading the way (so we’ve also got involved nationally), but it is also up to individuals to reduce their carbon emissions and tread more lightly on our beautiful world

Our Members

Our existence, and our activity, depends entirely on our membership. Most of us live in or fairly near Church Stretton, but we are in touch with friends as far afield as Japan, Canada, the USA and Luton.

All our volunteers are members (though not all members are volunteers!) and we offer training appropriate to whatever they do. If required, we arrange for DBS clearance

Meet the Team

David Howard - Chairman

As a one-time Head of a large Upper School, David is used to chairing lively discussions, as well as encouraging and promoting good ideas. When not immersed in local community activities, including driving for Ring and Ride, David practises reflection and gains a sense of equilibrium while working hard in his garden or on his allotment.

Jon Cooke - Publicity Officer

Our Publicity Officer Jon Cooke was our founder chairman and still is one of our main driving forces. He ensures the media know what we are up to. He joins us after a career in education, where he ended up as a primary head teacher.

Mike Hymas - Secretary

Mike Hymas, our tireless Secretary, spends a large amount of time reading and responding to government consultation documents on our behalf and makes sure we do all the right things at the right time.

Chris George - Treasurer

Our Treasurer, Chris George, has followed a career in banking by looking after our money. He produces the accounts within a month of the end of the financial year - so is up for the title of Fastest Chequebook in the West.

Mike Bourke - Trustee

Mike Bourke, Former Bishop of Wolverhampton, is vice chair and one of our leading home energy auditors. He was also co-compiler of our best-selling cookery book. He also has some very useful contacts (in this world and beyond!)

Jane Wrench - Trustee

Jane Wrench has been a Trustee since we started, and is Assistant Treasurer. She makes sure our Duck Races are successful and fun for all involved!

Marcus Cash - Trustee

Marcus Cash ensures our posters are on all the Strettons noticeboards for all to see. He is a retired Deputy Headmaster and geography teacher.

Lorna Taylor - Trustee

Lorna Taylor is lead on the SCC website and social media. With her background in knowledge management she provides an 'information service' alerting SCC colleagues to breaking news, government reports etc. Her eagle eye scans our documents, and although she doesn't necessarily know the answer, generally knows where to find it!

David Matthews - Trustee

David Matthews leads our resource management team. He has campaigned on environmental issues for many years, but becoming a grandad has inspired him to do more. David recently retired to live in Church Stretton after a career in IT, project management and environmental consulting.
