Coffee meet up Friday 31st at 1pm


Anyone welcome to a meetup for green support group and networking at Shaftesbury high street bakery (near bargains) please bring your reusable travel mug if you have one. If raining will stay inside, if sunny we can relocate to park walk for sunshine.

I look forward to seeing you.



Extract from latest message from Ellie via PSContent email after meetup on 31.5:


I'm just updating you on the Green Teas Meetup. So far it is a small but welcoming and friendly group with great ideas, we have a gentle theme and lots of room for socialising. Green Teas Meetup will be happening every other Friday from now at 1pm the high street bakery. 


So looks like next one will be this Friday, 14th June.

  • Hi All, Some of you may have noticed a recent refresh of the website design which hopefully makes things a little clearer and easier to read. We have also recently added a new "Further Reading" page. This contains many links to key reports and articles on Climate Change and Biodiversity loss. This is a great place to start if you want to learn more on these subjects. You can access the new page straight off the menu above - its under the "Find Out More" heading or just click here
  • Simon Hoare, North Dorset's Conservative MP until the dissolution of Parliament, replied to my request for his views on the climate emergency by saying: 'As I don’t know what the questions will be [at the 21 November hustings] I’m obviously not sure what my answers will be.' But he said he was prepared to give the following what he called 'a top line flavour' of his views: 'My main thrust will be: energy efficient building regulations, use of economic instruments to nudge behaviours, positioning 2050 as an end date not a target, and finally supporting initiatives to make our sophisticated lives more sustainable/less impactful.' So that's a full house: all four North Dorset Parliamentary candidates' views on the climate emergency are now on this Forum. Pin 'em down on 21 November!
