About the LEAP group

LEAP - Glaisfer walkThe Llangynidr Environment Action Group (LEAP) was formed in September 2009. We are based in the village of Llangynidr, about four miles from Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

We have more than 60 members and we organise regular walks, talks and trips.

For the past two years we've also been working hard to put our ambitious plans for a village hydro-electricity generation scheme into action – check it out here. Read out about other micro hydro generation schemes in the Brecon Beacons in this article in The Guardian.

We meet around four times a year and our members include young people with families, people with a professional interest in green technology and retired people with an interest in the environment. It's easy to join (it only costs £1) – just drop in to a meeting or give us a ring and come along to one of our events.

If you're interested in joining us we'll be happy to hear from you. You can come along to a meeting or event (just drop in) or speak to a committee member first on 01874 730747. You can get in touch by email here.

Up-to-date energy-saving advice

If you want some advice, we're here for that too. We have members who can talk you through the benefits of renewable technology – they've installed their own solar panels, extra insulation, bore holes and even ground source heat pumps.

Or see the 'energy facts' and 'information' pages of this website for more ways to help reduce household energy emissions. LINKS HERE
