First Steps to a Green Village

Hethersett is taking the first steps towards becoming a green village. 

A special working party of the parish council has been set-up to draw up an action plan to help the village reduce its carbon footprint. 

The “Hethersett A Green Village 2008” campaign has been launched to help reduce pollution and generally make the village greener. 

The working party consisting of parish councillors George Beckford, Anne Edwards, Fred Watkins, Heather Williamson and Gary Wyatt will have power to co-opt other members and will start by drawing up the action plan designed to reduce the carbon footprint and identify ways that the whole village can “Go Green.” 

A public meeting will be called at a date still to be set when experts will speak on climate change and how villages such as Hethersett can deal with it. 

“It is vital that we go greener. Now is the time for residents to think about how they can join in the scheme. There are a thousand and one ways people can do their bit,” George Beckford said. 

Meanwhile Hethersett Environmental Action Group’s next litter pick will take place on 26th January. Volunteers are invited to help clean up the village and equipment is provided. Meet outside the Methodist Church at 10 a.m. 

HEAT’s next meeting will be on 27th February in the upstairs room at the Methodist Church  at 8 p.m..
