Dr Richard Coates started the Purley Sustainability Group and chats to Paul about what they have been doing leading up to winning the Community Group of the Year Award in the West Berkshire Community Champions Award

Purley Sustainability Group was founded on 28 February 2020.

They perform functions such as encouraging Active Travel, improving water quality, initiating, co-organising and promoting a discounted solar panel scheme; finally, the group created a monthly repair cafe with the local community café where they aim to repair old items and much more.

On the whole, Purley Sustainability Group is committed to creating a more sustainable Purley on Thames, developing relationships between residents, helping the planet at a local level and finally working collectively with other local, sustainable initiatives for the common good of the environment.
