Hook Norton Low Carbon Limited (HNLC) is a not-for-profit Co-operative and Community Benefit Society set up to help the community reduce its energy consumption, carbon emissions and save money. We run a range of community-based schemes including the provision of solar panels and additional insulation at community buildings such as the school and village halls and also support individual household projects through the provision of interest-free or low cost loans.
We also operate a Community Car Club, an electric bike pool, heating fuel supply syndicates and a waste-oil biodiesel facility in the village and run regular Community Swap Shops as well as supporting local food production initiatives.
We hold open meetings every 2-3 months with advice clinics, themed discussions and guest speakers.

Incredible Edible Hooky
Incredible Edible Hooky aims to act where we best can, here in our own village, working to build a sustainable future by creating a community inspired to grow, cultivate, cook and share locally produced produce. Our BIG goals are:
- To significantly increase local food production
- Reduce our carbon footprint
- Encourage us all to take control of shaping our future as a community
You can help this happen, and we welcome anyone with any amount of time they would like to give. The Incredible Edible mantra is ‘If you eat, you’re in’! Even the smallest amount of your time will make so much difference to what we can achieve, together. For the sake of your those who will follow us, for your children and grandchildren, join the team today.
