‘Pledge Protect Connect’ event for the Year of Green Action
Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow, Saturday 13th July, 10.30am to 3pm
What is it?
The ‘Pledge Protect Connect’ event is hosted by the Peak District National Park Authority. Celebrating 2019 as the Year of Green Action, it will bring together people who are already making a difference for the environment and those looking for inspiration. The event is open to everyone and is free to attend.
There are speakers from locally based community groups and further afield. There are stalls, displays and activities (some outdoors) throughout the day - and a children’s play area. We’d love people of all generations to come together to inspire and to be inspired. We’d like people to leave having made a pledge to do something positive for their environment – and in turn we pledge to follow this up with our practical help and a community grant* to bring your ideas to life.
