Greening Campaign

Are you or your organisation interested in helping to create a ‘greener’ Kimpton?

Our community wants to join together and begin to make a difference to help our environment. We believe that coming out of Lockdown, we should be looking to a better, kinder, cleaner future, and we want to start building that future now. We are going to hold an on-line Public Meeting where we will learn how we can make a difference through the Greening Campaign. This has the support of Kimpton Parish Council and we are following in the footsteps of 100 other communities! Our aim is to take the hugely successful campaign started in Petersfield and to introduce it to Kimpton.

What is the ‘greening’ campaign?

Put simply, the campaign aims to encourage and support local people and businesses to take easy and straightforward steps to reduce energy consumption and waste – we will all see who is taking part and we will have great fun encouraging each other to make meaningful changes.

To kick off the campaign, we are holding an on-line public meeting where the Greening Campaign will be explained in detail. We will show a film by Terena Plowright, Founder of The Greening Campaign, so we all know what positive things are involved.

Those attending the meeting will be invited to help choose a number of simple actions they consider to be most relevant to the community and which will enable people to make a difference to our environment today – and long into the future.

Who is invited?

The meeting is also open to everyone who lives or works in our parish and so all organisations, businesses, societies, Church, Primary School and Pre-School are invited to send a representative. Please let your members know!

We believe this is an important campaign that could benefit us all – individuals, families, organisations, businesses and the community as a whole. We would be delighted to see you or a representative of your organisation on the 20th of April, at 7.00pm for a meeting lasting no more than 1 hour. Cllr Ian Corbett will be leading this public meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to the start of ‘Greening Kimpton’. If you have any questions please forward to clerk@kimptonpc.org.uk
