New Climate Change Action Group set up

On 17 September 2020, the parish council declared a climate emergency in Menheniot, and is leading a group of active and engaged residents to create an action plan. If you’d like to be part of the group, please email the Clerk’s Office with your preferred method of contact (email, social media, telephone) and the first line of your postcode.

Any contact information you send to the parish council is held securely to comply with Data Protection legislation. We will only use your contact details to talk with you about climate change. [6/10/20]
