The Climate Action group has celebrated its first year, one of intense activity. Set up by the Parish Council in response to the County Council's declaration of a climate emergency, it is made up of a mix of Parish Councillors and interested parishioners. The Group has produced regular articles for the Newsletter and webpage and manned a stall at the Landulph Celebrates day and the Christmas Craft Show. The group has highlighted ways in which we can all make a difference to climate change. It has also conducted a survey of parishioners concerns over climate change, the results of which are shown below.
Two members of the group plus myself in my capacity as a County Councillor also attend the recently formed Cornwall Gateway Climate Change Working Group to share ideas with other town and parish council groups. We were proud to be seen as being pro-active in our drive to help to reduce the impact of climate change.
Biodiversity is vital to sustaining our beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty. The community is very lucky to have many unsung heroes who, without being asked, just quietly get on and 'do stuff' to look after our environment; from litter picking (on land and on water) maintaining areas of green space, including the church yard, to planting wild flower plugs at Penyoke.
We hope year two will be a busy year and that we can continue to generate enthusiasm and support to protect our amazing world - especially this little corner of it.
Councillor Martin Worth, Chair of LPCAG
