    REAP Membership Survey

    Welcome to REAP’s first membership survey. We are keen to hear from as many of our members as possible.

    The attached letter and questionnaire are being delivered to REAP members over the next few days.

    However, you can download the letter here and the questionnaire here, save them to your computer, complete the questionnaire (it’s a Word document), and email it back to info@REAP-leeds.org.uk by the deadline of 17 February.

    Thanks to Leeds University student Clare Nutter who is organising it on our behalf. Summarised results which will appear on the website in early May.

    Green Day 2012

    On 28 April 2012, REAP is organising a “Green Day”.

    The Green Day will be a day to encourage people in the Roundhay area to improve the insulation of their homes and install renewable technologies, thereby reducing their carbon footprints.

    We envisage that on the Green Day, Roundhay residents will be able to visit other people’s homes who have already had solar PV, solar heating, biomass boilers, insulation (roof, floor, cavity wall, solid wall etc), ground source heat pumps, wood burning stoves or other environmentally friendly products installed and ask them about the cost, savings and any issues associated with the technologies.

    REAP is now calling for local residents to volunteer to welcome local residents into their homes on Green Day to talk to them about the measures that they have taken.

    If you have installed any of the measures listed above, and would be willing to take part, please download the information letter and short questionnaire HERE, and return the completed questionnaire to REAP by email to greenday@reap-leeds.org.uk.
