Once again, CFWI Climate Ambassadors teamed up with our Climate Coalition partners for a Valentine’s Day (almost) Show the Love event in February, this time kindly hosted by The Godolphin in Marazion. About 100 WI members, RSPB staff and volunteers, local environmental organisations and members of the public, as well as our local MP Derek Thomas, joined us for two hours of coffee, cake (WI cake of course), and conversation. The plan was that this would be followed by a beach clean, but Storm Dennis put paid to that, and the pounding of the waves outside the window was a good reminder of the battering our coastline is taking. Dr Dave Watkins from Cornwall Council gave a talk on the Council’s Mount’s Bay Shoreline Management Strategy – mainly about protecting infrastructure but abandoning many sections of coastline.
In the current pandemic, it is more important than ever to hold the Government to its climate pledges. So if you can’t get out, how about writing to your MP to Show the Love for the planet?
