Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Better Than Zero Carbon: Hempcrete Talks

  • Saturday 13 July 2024, 2pm
  • Aimed at local residents, community members, park users, and anyone who wanted to know more about hempcrete.

Join Growing Sudley and our capital team for a series of talks about the traditional, natural building material that needs to re-take the world by storm, Hempcrete. In researching ways to make our building refurbishment as low carbon and chemical free as possible, we’ve used this natural material to clad the building and we’re on a mission to spread the word and encourage others to use it wherever they can. 

Through these talks with our architects Harrison Stringfellow, you’ll find out more about the incredible story of Hempcrete, its use, and how it may avoid many of the environmental, logistic and economic downsides of concrete and other building materials.

To book and for more information go to the Sudley Walled Garden website.
