Would you like to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle…but not sure where to start?

For inspiration, look no further than the Pledge, Protect, Connect event at the Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow on Saturday 13th July.

The free event, hosted by the Peak District National Park Authority, is from 10.30am to 3pm. Celebrating the Year of Green Action, it will bring together people who are already making a difference for the environment and those who would like to do more. More »

There will be speakers from local community groups and from further afield, along with stalls, displays, activities and a children's play area.

Peak District National Park youth development officer, Carina Humberstone, said: "We'd love people of all generations to come together to inspire and to be inspired. We'd like people to make a pledge to do something positive for their environment – and in turn we pledge to follow this up with practical help and community grants for community groups and parish councils in the National Park to bring ideas to life."

Speakers include Mike Joseph, of Bradwell Community Hydro, Neil Cutts, of Plastic Free Communities / Surfers Against Sewage and Kate Harrison from Ashton Hayes in Cheshire, which aims to become England's first carbon neutral community.

The Year of Green Action (YoGA) is about connecting people all around the country with nature and showing how everyone can take positive action to improve our environment.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event, for all or part of the day. There are a limited number of stall/display spaces available. For more details, please visit or email / » Less
