Three members of Truro WI (Fiona Hughes, Margaret Cogan and Mary Lindsey) joined the Climate Coalition Lobby meeting with Cherilyn Mackrory, MP for Truro and Falmouth, this Tuesday.
The focus was on the Green Recovery that needs to be integral to Build Back Better. Cherilyn said that Cornwall is well-positioned to play a big part in this with the potential for new jobs in renewable energy, lithium mining, and other related areas. She is very committed to nature conservation and serves on the Committee for the Environment Bill, as well as the Conservative Environment Network.
The Truro WI members felt it was a very useful and productive meeting with much sharing of ideas and information, and they hope to keep in touch with the other participants.
