Congleton to host climate and green festival


Ahead of COP26 (31 October-12 November 2021), Congleton Town Council and Congleton Sustainability Group are working together to look at what can be done in Congleton to help combat the devastating effects of climate change.

Climate Change is already having a harmful effect on the planet and putting natural habitats under threat. To raise the profile locally, in the week leading up to COP26, Congleton Town Council and Congleton Sustainability Group are organising a programme of events for a Climate Festival and Green Fayre (23-31 October 2021).

Local people are encouraged to take part in the exciting activities planned aimed to learn more and show actions that we can all do to reduce our carbon footprint. Featuring over 20 ‘green’ activities from walks, talks, swaps, site visits, films and practical demonstrations such as tree planting and apple juicing.

Local community groups, organisations and businesses have signed up to showcase their work on the climate and nature emergency.

The week will end on Saturday 30 October with a Green Fayre held in the closed High Street with stalls and a range of green transport to view. The fayre is from 10am – 4pm.

If you are interested in joining in or are prepared to host a public event that encourages people to take care of our environment during that week, please contact: info@congleton-tc.gov.uk
