As the temperature falls and Christmas shopping gets thoroughly under way, Worcester Close the Door has started. A City Councillor has immediately endorsed the campaign:
"I was shocked to learn that closing shop doors in winter reduces energy usage and carbon emissions by up to 50%. Indeed, it is incredibly frustrating that so much energy has been wasted simply by leaving doors open. I am impressed by the Close the Door campaign, which has encouraged many people to take and support such a common-sense way of saving energy and money. I hope that many others will join the campaign" Neil Laurenson, St Stephens Ward.
