Green Autumn Ahead

It will be a green autumn for the village of Hethersett. 

An active summer of environmental work, which saw the distribution of eco friendly bags and also praise for the village’s work on environmental issues from judges in the Pride of Norfolk competition, is giving way to a full programme of events over the coming months. 

The green village working party will continue looking at green issues with its next meeting on 8th October when it will discuss future action. Meanwhile Hethersett Parish Council will be including a questionnaire in its next newsletter aimed at establishing what action has been taken by local people to reduce their carbon footprints. 

Hethersett Environmental Action Team (HEAT) will be leading another village litter pick on Saturday 27th September at 10 a.m when volunteers are welcome to help with all equipment provided. The next meeting of HEAT will take place in Hethersett Methodist Church on 1st October at 8 p.m. 

Thursday 16th October has been designated “No Plastic Bag Day” in the village when local businesses are joining together in not issuing plastic bags. Leading Hethersett environmentalist George Beckford is urging shoppers to use the cloth bags already provided to every household. 

Looking further ahead the village will once again be hosting an open gardens Sunday in 2009 on 5th July. Ten days later the annual presentation evening for prize-winners will be held.
