Winter 2013

The Green Centre is now opening mid week as well as on each Saturday for advice on all Energy matters and recycling. Mid week opening is every Wednesday from 10am to 2pm when you will be able to meet CAT as a first contact on any environmental matters.

Spring 2007

The Advice Centre is no longer located at Silverdale. The conditions imposed by the landlord at the renewal of the lease has meant that it is no longer possible to operate from the Cregg Mill site.

We are now operating from the 'cop shop' in Douglas jointly with Zero Waste Mann and Isle of Man Friends of the Earth. The 'cop shop' has now been re named 'The Green Centre' and advice on all Energy matters and recycling can be obtained from the centre free of charge. We are open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

The equipment used to generate power from the water at Cregg Mill has been put into Storage. We hope to be able to re-fit it to another water wheel in the future in order that the public can again see the capability of water wheels to generate electricity.
