A NEWLY-FORMED action group is hosting an information and community event.

Stocksfield Climate Group will meet on May 14 at Broomley First School between 10am-2pm.

It comes after the latest United Nations report on climate change revealed the world could still avoid the worst impacts but only by making "immediate and deep emission reductions."

The event, open to all, will give attendees the opportunity to find out about energy use and insulation, wildlife and bee-friendly gardening, as well as the group's plans for habitat and species surveys, the work of a local farm and to meet Broomley First School eco-warriors.

There will also be opportunities for the public to help determine local priorities.

“It's not easy to focus on the threat posed by climate change while it's overshadowed by the dreadful things happening in Ukraine, and the impact of the energy crisis, but the threat is here", said chairman Colin Chance. 

"It is not too late to make a difference and the time and opportunity to act is now, supporting each other and working together as a village.

"Even small practical changes do make a difference in slowing and reducing climate change.”
