Everyone is invited to a virtual village forum on Wednesday 22 July to discuss how we can all contribute to Haddenham Parish Council's Zero Carbon plan, in the post-Covid era.
Despite the difficulties and tragedies of 'lockdown', we have all noticed some positive impacts on village life and our environment -- less traffic, the ease of walking and cycling around the village, etc. As we carefully return to 'normal' perhaps we can retain many of these positives -- improving the quality of life in Haddenham while also reducing our community's carbon footprint.
To discuss creating a constructive legacy for Haddenham, in which we build back better, everyone is invited to an initial Zoom village forum. We will hear from the Parish Council on their plans, and from fellow villagers on some existing projects for a better Haddenham: from planting trees, to cycleways, to electric vehicles. But we also hope to hear other ideas and examples from anyone attending the village virtual forum.
More of us are working from home and spending more time in the village. We all have a common desire to keep improving the quality of life and environment in Haddenham. If each one of us does our small bit, collectively we can build back a better Haddenham. Come share your thoughts.
Although the event is being co-ordinated by Zero Carbon Haddenham (ZCH), Chair of ZCH, Greg Smith said, "this is not about one organisation taking responsibility for achieving a zero carbon Haddenham, but about all of us supporting the Parish Council and making our own small, individual contributions."
The Village Virtual Forum is on Wednesday 22nd July, from 7.30 — 8.30 pm.
8th July 2020
The meeting is open to all, but space is limited. The event is Free, but you will need to register in advance. Please register here if you wish to attend the virtual village forum.
