Great Big Green Week and Eco Fair 2022
Come and join us for our Big Green Day, a free event to meet like-minded people in your community and learn about planet-friendly ways of living.
We'll have a range of stalls open throughout the day, as well as displays and talks from expert speakers aimed at helping you learn more about our changing climate, and ways to reduce our impacts on the world.
Given the rising price of energy, we've brought in two speakers to talk about energy saving ways to save the planet without costing the earth. We'll also look at other aspects like food and other aspects of sustainable living, which will be featured in talks, stalls and displays.
We look forward to seeing you there!
