Cookpole Energy Action (CEA) was established in July 2009, following a talk to local residents about what we could all do to save energy, energy costs and carbon emissions. A group of us felt we should be able to do more, as a community, alongside the actions we can all take as individuals and households.
From this starting point, we have broadened our sights a bit, to take on a range of 'green' projects in the parishes of Cookley and Walpole, in North East Suffolk. Follow the menu options to find out more about our initiatives.

CEA currently has seven members. We meet roughly every six weeks, usually in each other's houses, to plan and implement our projects. We think we do good things, and we have a lot of fun. Please contact the Secretary if you think you might like to join us, or if you'd like to find out more.
