    Climate Action Addingham

    Addingham Parish Council is working together with members of the Addingham Civic Society, tackling issues relating to carbon, waste, water and wildlife. The work of this group will explore ways that that the village can reduce its carbon footprint and protect wildlife. The Council is committed to a sustainable future and a vision of “One Planet Living”. To see what the working group has been doing, please read the notes from the meetings.

    The Parish Council and the Civic Society in the village have come together to find ways we can reduce our carbon footprint, protect wildlife, especially local wildlife, and live more sustainable lives.  At the launch event on September 14th we will focus on “Waste reduction”, including waste recycling, food waste, rainwater harvesting and energy loss.

    At the launch event there will be:

    • Introductions by the Chairs of the Parish Council and the Civic Society 
    • Displays of food waste bin (wormeries and bokashi bins), rainwater butts and compost bins 
    • Displays of energy efficiency monitoring equipment for householders to borrow
    • A talk on “Garden waste and the art of composting” by Andrew Willocks (RHS Harlow Carr)
    • A question and answer session on Addingham’s environment and the role of Climate Action Addingham

     One of our objectives is for all households in the village to minimise waste and use compost bins, food waste bins and rainwater butts.  The Parish Council is making funds available for residents to obtain one of these items free of charge this Autumn.
