Ellie Chowns – Ward surgeries

On 26 March, I held my first ‘ward surgery’ at Bishops Frome Village Centre. This was a bit of an experiment. Many thanks to Godfrey, Tony and Robin who came along for a chat and a cuppa. We inspected some potholes and drainage issues in the village, and collected a bagful of litter while we were at it.

My next ward surgery will be at Cradley Village Hall on Monday 23 April from 10 am to 12 midday.

18 April: Make Herefordshire Fossil Free!

A Divestment Training Workshop: join the fight to free the UK from its harmful investments and relationships with fossil fuel companies!

Co-hosted by Herefordshire Green Network and Divest Parliament

At: Garden Room, Left Bank Village, Bridge Street, Hereford, HR4 9DG 7.30pm

This free training event is our opportunity to learn how to lobby our MPs, Councillors, faith institutions or universities on climate change. We’ll be learning and putting into practice the best techniques, tricks and strategies to convince Bill Wiggin MP and Jesse Norman MP to divest their pension fund from fossil fuels and get behind a clean energy future.

Join an interactive training event that seeks to inspire locals around Herefordshire, supporting those campaigning for a fossil-free future and encouraging others to join or help start a local divestment group in your area.

To date, over 140 former and current MPs have backed the Divest Parliament campaign – including leaders of the Labour Party, Scottish National Party, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party.

Help us add Herefordshire to the list!

If you can’t make the event, you can still write to your MP using this tool (please personalise your email as much as possible): https://gofossilfree.org/uk/divest-parliament/#ask
