Kinder Living back in Horsham for 2022

The Kinder Living Home Show made a welcome return to Horsham on 5 and 6 March, bringing lots of information, advice and inspiration to make homes and gardens more sustainable.

The show was visited this year by Horsham District Chairman Cllr David Skipp and Cabinet Member for the Environment and Rural Affairs Cllr James Wright.

Cllr Skipp commented:

I was very impressed by the show this year and spent nearly three hours visiting stalls and talking to people who are keen to enhance the environment, from a sheep owner whose flock provides wool that can be used as a peat free alternative, can be added to compost or as a deterrent against slugs, to a couple who upcycle old pallets into new wildlife habitats, and eco-friendly churches supporting the Horsham Community Fridge and Food Bank.

I was impressed by the enthusiasm and determination to tackle the challenges of reducing our carbon footprint. Exhibiters also included wooden floor restorers, a small business lending tools for home improvements, seed exchange stalls and furniture restoration experts. And even a farmer from Devon who runs a vegetable delivery service free of charge!

Cllr Wright added:

Great to meet all the exhibitors at the Kinder Living Show this year, especially Sussex EVs as we are rolling out our network of electrical vehicle chargers in Horsham District car parks to encourage the adoption of low and no-emission vehicles.

Thank you to the organisers for putting on a great event with exhibitors from across the District and beyond, not just telling people to how to live better but also providing them with the tools and practical knowledge to do so.

There was an incredible amount of knowledge and tools on how to make better decisions in every aspect of our lives whilst maintaining our living standards and without breaking the bank. I encourage all those interested in protecting our planet to keep an eye on their future events.
