Winter Talks 2022

Following on from what you told us was important in last year's questionnaire (see below), we have organised two free events to help us understand the practical implications of climate change on our lives in Landulph. Each talk will be at the Landulph Memorial Hall from 18:30 to 20:30 with wine and hot drinks available for a donation (regulations permitting). The sessions will also be streamed live on Zoom. Please register your interest now in both sessions and we will send you more information.

Monday 7 February: Our Future in the Tamar Valley

We have speakers lined up to tell us about the changes we can expect in the next few years and the opportunities for our community to participate. There will be three topics but plenty of time for the audience (both live and virtual) to ask questions and put forward their views:

  • Sammy Fraser and Gary Lewis from the Tamara Landscape Partnership will explain about the 10 projects in this huge 5 year scheme and how we can get involved.
  • Frank Newell and Andy Rogers from the Environment Agency will talk about flooding and flood prevention in the Tamar valley.
  • Lydia Deacon of the Westcountry Rivers Trust will discuss Tamar river quality and how we can help to monitor it.  

Please note these presentations from the event are available.

Monday 7 March: Saving Energy

Saving energy is both good for the planet and for saving money.  There will be three topics with plenty of time for the audience (both live and virtual) to ask questions: 

  • Councillor Martyn Alvey, Cornwall Council Cabinet for Environment and Climate Change, was instrumental in the development of the Cornwall Climate Emergency and will discuss the implications for a parish like Landulph.
  • Matthew Trevaskis, Drivenergy is responsible for installing and selling car charging products and will talk about the different options for charging an electric car including costs and the problem of houses without off-street parking.
  • Community Energy Plus is an organisation providing independent energy advice to householders in Cornwall.  Sandy George and Tim Jones will discuss heating and energy options with particular reference to old buildings.  They will be bringing some materials with them and are very happy to answer questions.  Community Energy plus have a wide range of useful leaflets on their website.

Please note these presentations from the event are available.
