ALL INVITED TO CONGLETON’S GREEN FAYRE SATURDAY 30th OCTOBER
This weekend, ahead of the start of the COP26 Climate Change conference in Glasgow people in Congleton are being invited to come along to a Green Fayre to find out more about how they can reduce their environmental footprint.
The High Street will be closed to traffic and from 10am – 4pm there will be a chance to meet over 30 groups, suppliers and campaigners linked with environmental activities. There will also be some electric vehicles and adapted bikes to view, a static bike to try and a a renewable energy trailer packed with advice.
The Green Fayre has been organised by Congleton Town Council and Congleton’s Sustainability Group to put the spotlight on what can and needs to be done locally to help solve this international threat to life.
Jackie MacArthur from Congleton Town Council said: “The Green Fayre is a great opportunity to showcase and share some of the good work already going on in Congleton to reduce our impact on the environment. We hope lots of people will spend time learning about what is already happening in Congleton and take away some ideas for actions and changes that they can do to help with the climate and nature emergency”
The Green Fayre comes on the penultimate day of the Climate Festival week which has seen a number of walks, talks, demonstrations, meetings and tours.
