Llangattock Community Council is celebrating The Great Big Green Week (24 September – 2 October) with a whole month of free family-friendly eco-themed events.
Highlights include two repair cafes, a clothes upcycling workshop, uniform swap and a series of thought-provoking film screenings and talks.
Community councillor Kate Inglis, who heads up the council’s Environment Working Group, says: “We’re delighted to be involved in the Great Big Green Week, the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature.
“We know there are already plenty of fantastic green initiatives going on in our community, but this is a chance for even more people to get involved and learn how they can make a difference.”
The month-long programme, supported by the Together for Our Planet, National Lottery Fund, kicks off at 7pm on Wednesday 28 September with a screening at Llangattock Community Hall of “The Hidden Life of Trees”, a fascinating documentary looking at the complex ways trees have evolved to grow, reproduce, protect themselves and communicate.
Other films include “2040” (Wednesday 5 October), an uplifting imagining of what the future could look like if we embraced key climate change solutions now, and implemented them at scale, “Reflection – a Walk with Water” (Wednesday 12 October), a far-reaching look at our relationship with this precious resource, and “Seeds of Vandana Shiva” (Wednesday 19 October), which presents the remarkable life story of eco-activist and agro-ecologist, Vandana Shiva.
Weekend children’s screenings will include “The Lorax”, “Wall-E” and “Bee Movie”.
Most events will require a free ticket, which can be booked through Eventbrite.
