Tradespeople invited to S&ELCP's Meet the Buyer event to help deliver Sustainable Warmth property improvements

Posted on 18 October 2022

Local tradespeople have the opportunity to work with the South and East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership to deliver a programme aimed at reducing fuel poverty and improving the energy efficiency of domestic properties.

The Partnership's Green Homes Grants is currently delivering a multi-million pound Government-funded programme to improve the energy performance of privately owned and rented properties across Boston, East Lindsey and South Holland, known as Sustainable Warmth.

One of the Partnership's main contractors, Everwarm, is holding a Meet the Buyer event at the Jakeman's Community Stadium in Boston to broaden their local supply chain. They are particularly keen to hear from electricians, plumbers/gas engineers, window fitters/manufacturers, cavity wall and flat roof insulation installers and solar PV installers.

In a joint statement, Cllr Graham Marsh Portfolio Holder for Carbon Reduction at East Lindsey District Council, Lord Gary Porter Leader of South Holland District Council and Cllr Paul Skinner Leader of Boston Borough Council said: "Earlier this year the Partnership was awarded more than £7m to help private homeowners and landlords to deliver energy efficiency improvements to not only help save money but to reduce their carbon footprint.

"The Partnership is now delivering this work and it is a fantastic opportunity for local tradespeople to get involved and help deliver these improvements for our residents and landlords. We encourage those in the trade to attend the Meet the Buyer event to find out how they can be involved."

The event will take place between 8.30am and 12pm on Tuesday 25 October and will be an opportunity for tradespeople to register your interest, meet with Everwarm's procurement and operational teams and also meet members of the Partnership's Green Homes Grants delivery team.
