We currently use St Werburghs Community Centre for our flower arranging courses Bristol location, this is due to its central accessibility and also because of the eco-friendly practices at the centre. The venue offers excellent facilities, the rooms are bright and airy, with wooden floors. The newly refurbished rooms are all situated on ground level and are wheelchair accessible. The centre is in a residential area and there is plenty of on street parking outside, the centre is immediately off junction 3 of the M32 in Bristol.
Pixi flowers runs classes in three rooms within the building. The favourite choice being the newly built, eco-friendly and modern annexe at the rear, with underfloor heating. The new annexe building has a bank of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into power. There is a display that shows how much power is being generated, the total so far and the amount of CO2 saved.
There is also a Sedum (grass) roof on the new annexe building. This provides a high level of insulation and in addition reduces the level of rainwater entering the drains. The walls are also well insulated with ‘Warmcell’ which is manufactured from 100% recycled waste paper. Ceiling lights in the annexe are also environmentally friendly, using sunlight tubes designed to capture and intensify natural daylight.
