Burford Environmental Action Group (BEAgles)  

Burford Environmental Action Group (otherwise known as the BEAgles) are a group of active residents in Burford and the surrounding villages, who came together in 2021.

They meet regularly to find solutions to the climate and nature crisis and build local support for a sustainable future. 

The group feel that nothing short of a revolution is needed in how we approach our future energy system.

The members are involved in activities such as:

  • promoting energy saving measures in homes and buildings
  • a community allotment
  • repair cafes

To raise awareness of energy saving measures, they carried out a thermal imaging campaign in the community. They gathered useful information on the heat loss of the local housing stock and use that information to advise householders on funding available for energy saving measures in the home.
