Residents of Beeston’s award-winning sustainable development, Greenhouse, will be supporting the annual Earth Hour Event tomorrow by coming together with their neighbours for a night of going back to basics.
Getting involved with Saturday’s international initiative, ‘The Big Switch Off’, Greenhouse developers, Citu are inviting residents to come together in their sustainable events space, Greenspace, whilst the lights are switched off at 8.30pm as they join hundreds of millions of others worldwide in showing their commitment to energy saving.
Escaping from the world of tech for a few hours, residents will battle it out in a retro pub quiz to see who’s the biggest Dingbat and there’s also a chance to indulge in a bit of nostalgia as old board games are dusted off and all the old favourites such as Guess Who, Cluedo and Pictionary all come out.
Hidden talents are also to be discovered as the musicians in the building set to entertain their neighbours.
Citu’s Fraser Stride added:
“We’re using Earth Hour as an opportunity to get everyone together, to meet neighbours they might not yet have had chance to chat to, and enjoy an evening without technology, instead relying on old school styles of entertainment for everyone to get to know each other.”
The event gets under way at 7.30pm. If you’d like to attend, non-residents are welcome but must register with firstname.lastname@example.org.
