We are appealing to volunteers to form a Climate Change Action Group within the parish. Cllr Davis offered to represent the parish at the Virtual Climate Change Summit on 12th May and will report at the June meeting 

If anyone has a specific interest in climate change and environmental issues and would like to lead or join such a group, the Parish Council would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact the Clerk 

This is of significant importance to all of us now, for our family, children and grandchildren and for all their children in future years. 

All of us need to start thinking what we can do, no matter how small, to help reduce and eventually stop problems that have been caused to our environment, the places we live and where ever we enjoy our daily lives.
