We are delighted that our walking entry in Tavistock Carnival was judged best in class. Our costumes drew on the colourful characters in “The Lorax” – a Dr Seuss children’s story about restoring a forest destroyed by greed – which has been made into a musical and more recently a film. Thanks to the Lions Club of Tavistock for organising this enjoyable community event.
Tuesday 20th June, 7pm Tavistock United Reformed Church, Russell St. The evening includes our AGM – a chance to take stock, affirm the vision and plan for the future. We welcome the filmmaker Bryony Stokes of Cornwall Climate Care to present and discuss lead the 30 minute documentary “Food for Thought” covering regenerative farming, climate change and nutritious local food.
Entry free, thanks to sponsorship of the film showing by local firm Wings Accountants, but donations towards wider costs appreciated, as are new membership subscriptions (only £5pa).
In consultation with Learn Devon we have decided to postpone the workshop about how to engage people in responding to climate change, previously announced for 8th December. We hope to reschedule this in 2022. Meanwhile we will signpost relevant resources on our Climate Matters page.
We’ve got a stall at two great events which showcase local organisations working for the health of people and planet. Drop in to find out more about what we do and how you can be involved.
We’re joining other groups in West Devon for activities in this national week drawing attention to why climate change and nature loss matter and what we can do. Summary of Tavistock events in the poster below. More events, details and booking links here.
