Tarporley Rotary Hosts Environmental Event

Tarporley Rotary organised a Zoom event on Cheshire's Climate Emergency Response & Carbon Management Program


On Wednesday 24 February the Rotary Club of Tarporley was able to hear first-hand about the Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority’s Climate Emergency Response Plan. 

Matt Bryan is CWAC’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Planning and Climate Emergency and Chair of the Climate Emergency Task Force. He gave Rotarian’s from Tarporley and the wider Rotary Region a detailed insight into the plan via a Zoom meeting. 

Nearly 100 people tuned in to hear Matt take the Rotarians and other interested guests, including local parish councillors, through the targets CWAC has set itself as it seeks to drive down carbon emissions to net zero; for the Council by 2030 and for the Borough by 2045.

He also gave a detailed insight into the exciting plans and huge investment that CWAC are making to meet these ambitious targets. The result of a well researched and collaborative approach, this plan will affect all of our lives and ensure Cheshire remains a leader in tackling the Climate Emergency. 

As you can imagine Matt is very keen for all local residents to actively support the plan and build on the good work already happening in the CWAC area. You can view his presentation by following the Zoom link below. 

Rotarians, locally, throughout the region and Internationally are already doing their bit to Support the Environment, Rotary International’s 7th area of focus. Locally we will be looking for ways to support the CWAC plan, from litter picks, raising awareness, planting trees and many other initiatives. 

Tarporley Rotary’s Chair of the Youth & Environment Committee, Nick Parker, who organised the session with Matt said, “we are delighted so many people have attended”; in his vote of thanks Nick said; “we all need to play our part to enthusiastically support the (CWAC) plan.”

We would love to hear from those who want to help us or think we might be able help them with any initiative that supports the environment.
