Project Manager, Karen Welsh said: “We are pleased that our project is going from strength to strength and as we head into the colder months l’m delighted to welcome our new partnerships in relation to the home energy strand of our project. I’ve worked with Lilian from Home Energy Scotland on previous projects. Her knowledge and espertise in her field along with her support is second to none and l’m so happy that we are working with Lilian and HES in Cumbernauld.

“I was introduced to Ian Naismith, Energy Assessor via the Business Club here at Broadwood and it was apparent that Ian’s years of experience in this field could only be an assest to our project. I welcome them both to our team and look forward to talking to the people of Cumbernauld on ways that we can help reduce their fuel bills.”
