Watching Sir David Attenborough’s television programmes and reading Greta Thunberg’s books has inspired 11-year-old Lulu Reynolds to do her ‘bit’ to help the planet she lives on. On her own initiative (with a little help from the grown-ups around her) Lulu has meticulously planned Shropshire’s first ‘Climate Change Awareness Fair’ which is being held at Pontesbury Public Hall on March 29th
On offer will be a selection of eco-friendly information stalls and local experts with simple, practical examples of what we can all do ease our burden on Planet Earth.
Amongst the guest speakers will be environmentalists Nicola Schumacher, whose father wrote the pioneering book ‘Small is Beautiful’, and Charlotte Hollins of Fordhall Farm, where one of Britain’s lowest-carbon buildings has just been opened.
There will also be eco-games for children to play and family guides to help us all live a more environmentally compatible lifestyle.
