About Petersfield Society
Petersfield Society is a charity led by volunteers working for the Petersfield community to conserve and enhance the special character of this historic market town and make it a place more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive to live, work and visit.
We are a member of Civic Voice, the national charity representing hundreds of local civic and amenity societies in communities across England.
We aim to:
Wednesday 22 May 2019, 7.00pm for 7.30pm to 9:30pm
Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Crundles, Moggs Mead, GU31 4PJ
Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. The
Met Office reports that there may be only 12 years before we
reach 1.5°C of warming. How well or poorly prepared are we in
Petersfield and surrounding villages for the widely predicted
extreme weather effects?
This Community Forum will look at how heat and flooding can be mitigated by green infrastructure, and by maximising the contribution of our natural environment.
We will hear from the Environment Agency about the likely impacts on places like ours, about climate change policies from the District Council and National Park Authority, and from green infrastructure experts.
Our speakers are:
Katy Peat, Environment Agency Climate Change Research Group
Jane Devlin, Energy Strategy Manager, East Hampshire District Council
Bruce Collinson, Project Manager, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company
There will be opportunity for plenty of discussion, a chance to feed back our hopes and to decide individual and group actions.
EVERYONE WELCOME. WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Please note: Herne Farm Leisure Centre has level access but no accessible toilet.
Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean 2019 is underway and Petersfield Society organised a community litter-pick in March in which 60 volunteers collected 112 sacks of litter from 25 sq km of Petersfield and Sheet.
