Are you a supporter of Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic campaign, and would you be willing to talk to me briefly on the phone or answer questions in an email or via this website’s contact form, to provide information for an article I am writing?
I’m writing an article about Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic campaign and would appreciate comments from supporters of the Save the Arctic campaign about a contradiction that my article explores.
I have already asked Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic campaign to comment and they have agreed to this. They aim to provide a comment by Wednesday 8th. It would be interesting to know what campaign supporters think too.
Hebden Bridge Town Partnership is a group that includes representatives of Calderdale Council, the town and parish councils, local businesses, and community and voluntary organisations. A registered charity, its aims and objectives focus on promoting “the environmental economic and social regeneration of Hebden Royd and the four adjacent parishes of Blackshaw Head, Erringden, Heptonstall and Wadsworth.”
It is launching the town Action Plan, 2020 Vision, on Saturday May 18th in Hebden Bridge Town Hall.
The event starts at 10am and continues to 3pm and you are welcome to drop in at any time. There will be a series of workshops throughout the day on particular topics and themes. The full timetable for the day will shortly be on the HB Town Partnership website.
This is a briefing from Keep Our NHS Public (KONP). It basically asks you to write to LibDem and Cross-bench peers asap,asking them to block the second set of NHS privatisation regulations. It provides examples of standard letters for each type of peer. It also asks you to write to your MP asking them to support Early Day Motion (EDM) 1188, if they haven’t already done so.
I’m doing these things today, I hope you will too.
It explains the background to these campaign requests.
Message from Chris Goddard of HB Self Build CIC:
“The Hebden Bridge Community Self Build Community Interest Company has now joined forces with Todmorden Sustainable Low Impact Community Eco homes (SLICE) and is now called the Hebden Bridge And Todmorden Community Self Build Housing CIC (or HATS for short).
SLICE invites everyone to their Film Night on Wed 17th April at 7pm, in Todmorden Community Resource Centre (in the corner of the car park off Union St near the
centre of Todmorden).
What with snow and mud, Incredible Edible Mytholm’s decided it could be unsafe to hold the Growing Futures Field Day in the Mytholm playing field this Saturday, 30th March. This is a shame, we were looking forward to it.
But now we’re looking forward to holding it in Hebden Bridge Town Hall, in the Waterside Hall and courtyard!
Hebden Bridge Community Association have been fantastic in accommodating us at short notice, so that all the scheduled events can still happen.
This is climate change – arctic sea ice melt is pushing jet stream south .
So let’s have some effective laws asap, to stop ecocide and corporate profiteering from burning fossil fuels that pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
