Nantwich residents’ “zero carbon” River Ramble

As world leaders role into Glasgow for urgent talks on climate change, Nantwich residents are adding their voices to the resounding call for politicians to “Walk the Walk” and protect future generations.

Sustainable Nantwich has organised a walk at 10am on Saturday 30th October to bring people together – on the eve of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26).

The gentle ramble along the river Weaver through the picturesque histroic market town, from Reaseheath to the Coed Wen community woodland, will give people the chance to get together for the planet, and learn more about some of the town’s community environmental schemes.

The event kicks off at Reaseheath – meet at the Library. Everyone is invited to come along. The Mayor Stuart Bostock is already signed up.

Sustainable Nantwich campaigner Jeremy Herbert said now is a critical point in human history.

“World leaders have been burying their heads in the sand but they can’t ignore the climate emergency any longer. Boris Johnson last week told world leaders to ‘grow up’ and ‘listen to the scientists.’ We are calling on him and his colleagues around the world to walk the walk. That’s what we are dong!”

“The real power to change things lays in the hands of Governments. They make the laws. We need international action and there’s no time to lose,” he said.

Zero Carbon Cheshire

The community group has been a driving force behind a major initiative to help and support Cheshire businesses in the drive to go for a zero carbon economy.

Working with Reaseheath College the new Cheshire Zero Carbon network kicks off with a virtual conference on Wednesday 27th October. Top level business leaders are on board. International environmental expert Jonathon Porritt CBE is the keynote speaker.

The event is free and open to all. For more information and to book your place visit Cheshire Net Zero Carbon Conference.
