On February 14th Totnes and Bridgetown are joining forces to ‘Show The Love’ of our planet.
It’s not just a local thing; this is a nationwide Climate Coalition initiative. On that day throughout the country people of all walks of life will be turning their hearts green (the symbol of Show The Love). Inspired by their experience with Extinction Rebellion on Waterloo Bridge last year, members of the Totnes WI have organised an inspiring day of talks and activities in St Mary’s Church Totnes from 10.30am to 3.30pm and with the help of volunteers and Bridgetown Alive, an uplifting evening of food, music and spoken word in St John’s Bridgetown from 6pm onwards.
The daytime event is FREE. We hope that people will come along, feel inspired, ask questions, take part in workshops and quizzes, make pledges and have fun! FREE ENTRY from 10.30am Keynote Speakers from 11am: 11am Guy Singh Watson, Riverford Farm, 12.15pm Dr Kerry Howell, Marine Biologist-Deep Ocean Scientist, 1.30pm Emma Rendle, Oceanographer.
There will be workshops and stalls from The Woodland Trust, Network of Wellbeing – NOW, TRESOC, T.A.T Totnes Against Trash, Eco Church, The Science, Forrest Bathing, Share Shed and Extinction Rebellion Totnes, Fair Trade and local schools.
