Greener Belstone is an apolitical village initiative focused on promoting sustainability and tackling climate change, alongside protecting and increasing our local biodiversity.
Greener Belstone will do this by:
- Providing a hub of useful sustainability information and ideas
- Organising community initiatives and events for Belstone
- Working with other local groups on green issues
The Greener Belstone organising group welcomes any villagers interested in working together towards these goals. Contact us at GreenerBelstone@gmail.com.
Our group currently consists of:
We are not linked to the Parish Council or Village Hall but hope to work with them on environmental projects.
