Residents in the Chew Valley are being invited to learn more about the action being taken locally to tackle the Climate Emergency at the AGM of their area Connecting Communities Forum.
The meeting, which is being held on Monday 26 July at 6pm via Zoom, will include an update from the Forum’s Climate and Nature Emergency Working Group.
The Chew Valley Area Forum –– which covers Chelwood, Chew Magna, Chew Stoke, Clutton, Compton Martin, East Harptree, Hinton Blewett, Nempnett Thrubwell, Norton Malreward, Publow and Pensford, Stanton Drew, Stowey Sutton, Temple Cloud and Cameley, Ubley, West Harptree and Whitchurch - is supported by Bath & North East Somerset Council and brings together public services, local organisations and residents to improve local engagement, encourage people to talk to each other and share their skills and ideas.
Councillor Kevin Guy, Leader of Bath & North Somerset Council, said: “One of our key commitments is to give people a bigger say on issues that matter to them. Our Area Forums provide residents with the perfect opportunity to give us feedback.”
The AGM will also see the election of a Chair and Vice-Chair for the coming year.
Current Forum Chair, Chris Head said: “With the Climate Emergency as our theme for the meeting we will be focussing on a range of issues that affect our rural communities from energy, to the environment and transport. I’m very much looking forward to the discussion and would urge residents to get involved in the Forum and have their say on these incredibly important issues.”
