Info Guide: In the smart home… Heat Pumps

Squash Liverpool: How they grew a community space from a small seed of hope

Squash is a women-led, bold and ambitious community organisation established by  Clare Owens and Becky Vipond. It has been rooted and home-grown on Windsor Street in Toxteth, Liverpool since 2010. Embracing art, food, and environmental focus, they are committed to affecting their neighbourhood’s creative, participatory, positive social change.
