Renewables talk

AN INSIGHT into renewal energy is being given at the next meeting of Soroptimist International Tynemouth, Whitley Bay and District.

In a change to its programme of events, a guest from the National Renewable Energy Centre (NaREC) in Blyth will be speaking about their work.

Club president Linda Johnson chose NaREC after learning it had been given grants of £80m for research into renewable energy.

The meeting takes place on Monday, February 14, at Tynemouth Golf Club, at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.
