Much has been happening locally in terms of climate action:
The Holme Valley Parish Council continue to promote such action, through the work of their Climate Emergency Co-ordinator and the Climate Emergency Standing Committee. Last month, as part of the Jubilee celebrations, members of the Standing Committee gave presentations in local schools on climate change, distributed bee bombs, introduced a poster competition and launched a tree planting initiative.
The Council’s Climate Emergency website describes resources available and provides information relating to local climate action in the Holme Valley
