Dun­can brings his Eco Eye ex­per­tise to Town Hall

Bray People - - Schoolsreport -

DUN­CAN Ste­wart, tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter and sus­tain­abil­ity ex­pert, was on hand at Bray Town Hall last week to talk about how every­one can do their bit to save en­ergy.

Ste­wart said that Bray has the po­ten­tial to launch a great num­ber of pi­lot projects in the area to save en­ergy. He stressed the im­por­tance of build­ing up to the ideal level of en­ergy con­ser­va­tion step-by-step.

The pre­sen­ter of ‘About the House,’ and ‘Eco Eye’ is one of the coun­try’s best known en­vi­ron­men­tal cam­paign­ers and he kept a large group fas­ci­nated for over two hours last Thurs­day evening, giv­ing tips on his topic of ex­per­tise.

‘He was ab­so­lutely grip­ping,’ said Cllr. Caro­line Bur­rell on the award­win­ning ar­chi­tect, who spe­cialises in eco­log­i­cal de­signs and en­ergy. Dun­can’s en­thu­si­asm on-screen is just as pal­pa­ble in the flesh and every­one present left with a new zest for in­su­la­tion. He ar­rived at around 7.30 p.m. and the evening’s busi­ness did not fin­ish un­til around 10 that night.

The talk was fol­lowed on Fri­day af­ter­noon by a ‘Com­mu­nity Chal­lenge Sem­i­nar,’ also in the Town Hall from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
