Public Events

Barry felt that the COP26 event in Glasgow was an opportunity to raise public awareness around climate change issues. Highlight what we have achieved, hold a Green Fayre as close to the event as possible ( Cop 26 – Glasgow – 1 to 12 Nov) , possible link in with other events happening around the town ( Congleton park 150 years, Link Rd opening etc.). J.Mac to chase up the Link Rd idea.

PA asked if BS could get hold of any banner from any of his contact. Morgan thinks that the Art Dept at EBA may be able to produce something locally.

MS/PA to pursue the use of Jo Money’s town banner sites through the summer and close to the green fayre.

Lindo Moss, CWT to keep us informed of anything happening there that we could get involved with (A.Linnet)

Congleton Recycling Centre.

Closure of the tip was discussed and any action we could take. CTC will be discussing the situation this week, final decision to be made by CEBC on 15th march.
