Carnforth Town Council is delighted to be officially supporting the Great Big Green Week 10th – 18th June. This is a national community event on action to tackle climate change and protect nature.
As part of this initiative, we are holding our second Carnforth Great Big Green Day on Saturday 17th June at Crag Bank Village Hall from 10am to 1pm.
You can find out how the Carnforth Neighbourhood Plan – recently adopted following wide consultation – focuses on improving air quality and traffic control, aims to protecting our open and green spaces and promotes sustainable, affordable and self-sufficient housing.
You can find out about the electric car sharing scheme – jointly developed by Lancashire County, Lancaster City and Carnforth Town Council and Co-wheels Limited that was launched last year, as well as see one of the new electric vehicles in use as part of the scheme.
There will be also be an opportunity for hear what volunteer and community groups are doing to enhance our local environment and how you can get involved.
There will also be a an intergenerational conversation bringing together people of all ages to talk about Climate Change and what action they want to celebrate or see happen.
At the same time there will be a Carnforth Great Big Clean-Up, including litter picking and weed clearance around Crag Bank.
The Council is encouraging residents of all ages to join us at the Crag Bank Village Hall Car Park at 10am to spend a couple of hours on what we hope will be their biggest clean up yet!
Heart shapes will be created to highlight the amount of litter collected and everyone talking part will be awarded with a drink and a snack.
Throughout the week the Town Council is encouraging local schools and residents to share their hopes for future generations through protecting the environment and their fears about what life could be like if climate change is not slowed down – by writing ‘Letters To Tomorrow’ imagining that they are writing a letter to a loved one in the year 2030. A handwritten letter can be posted to Carnforth Town Council 46 – 48 Market Street Carnforth LA5 9LB or sent electronically to Leah Longhorn at: email@example.com.
