We got there in time for the talk. However I missed seeing all the stalls.

Does anyone in Marple sell the pan scrubber type things (they look like coconut fibres - natural anyway)?
I want to stop using sponges where the bits get into the watercourse.

Thanks.

Climate Crisis in Marple!

Sunday 29 September, 2.30—5.30pm is the time to discover and work out what we can all do to play our part both as individuals and community to combat the effect of Climate Change.



Dr Chris Jones from the Tyndall Climate Research Centre at Manchester University will explain the facts and realities of Climate Change and together attendees will explore how we can adapt our lifestyle to make changes to our carbon emissions.  The event will incorporate stalls and displays and there is an Art Competition for the local schools.

The afternoon will conclude with people being encouraged to make community and individual pledges to change our lifestyles to benefit the environment.  So whether it is never again buying cling film or wet wipes or abandoning the tumble dryer and the car to growing our own vegetables and only eating meat once a week, the aim of the afternoon is to encourage people to discover the changes we can all make to cut our carbon emissions to zero in the Manchester target of 2038.
