128 householders in Winchester district had a free home energy assessment in February and March 2012, thanks to Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC), using funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change Local Energy Assessment Fund.

Money doesn't buy happiness, and the more stuff we have, the more we want. Consumerism makes us discontented. People who are well off can buy more and more stuff, while poorer people in this country have little, and much less in parts of the world like Africa.
