New trees for park during climate week

PEOPLE, schools and companies are being encouraged to get involved in Climate Week.

The week, held from March 21 to 27, is a national initiative to raise awareness of climate change and help reduce carbon emissions.

Events include the planting of more than 300 plants at Daventry Country Park by workers from DHL Wetherspoon in Daventry.

Local schools are being encouraged to sign-up to the national Climate Week Challenge competition which is being announced on March 21.

The Northamptonshire Waste Education Team is also offering to support schools with climate activities such as making ‘junk art’ and writing climate poems made from recycled words.

And members of the public can take advantage of advice on energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, such as the feed-in-tariff scheme.
