CLUN’S youngest residents led a ‘Clun in the Future’ event.

Ludlow MP Philip Dunne opened the event which began with the children of St George’s School singing a call to action.

With this in mind, and the all-important COP 26 Climate Summit in Glasgow in November approaching fast, the day organised by Clun residents was all about what can be done, now, to live with less waste, better care for nature, a lower carbon footprint and with thought about how to shape the future.

The all-day event was crowded with people who came from Clun and beyond to hear talks and see demonstrations of electric cars, heat pumps, restoring nature, reducing waste and building a resilient local economy.

“I just wanted to say what a great event you organized, really encouraging to see so many people there, including some not already on board,” said Mr Dunne.

There were maps at the event so that local people could make their own mark, beginning the process of a community plan, with comments, hopes and concerns about what they would like to see developed in the town.
