  • Loss of habitat
  • Local awareness
  • Reduce litter and encourage recycling in schools/shop – crisp packet collection points

  • ‘Be brave, make good decisions for the future’
  • Carbon zero aspirations
  • Creating a safer, clean environment by reducing Carbon Dioxide

The members of the Council thanked the young people for attending and helping to raise awareness.

New Parish Councillor:  there was a vacancy on the Council and we were able to fill this with the co-option onto the council of Ros Hathorn. Ros provided everyone with a brief bio and introduced herself to the members, and was duly accepted onto the Council.

The next scheduled meeting of Full Council will be held on Monday 21st October at the Recreation Community Room, New Road, Impington.  Refreshments are available from 7 p.m.
