March held in Hereford to highlight climate change
3:08pm Monday 10th March 2014 in News
AROUND 50 people marched through the streets of Hereford on Saturday to highlight climate change.
The group - carrying banners and placards - started from the Leisure Pool before making their way to High Town.
The march was the culmination of a week long list of events that took place in the county to mark national Climate Week.
A display was held all week at All Saints Church in Hereford where people read all about climate change and wrote down their thoughts in a book.
Richard Priestley and Michael Goodfellow spoke at a Concern Universal public meeting at the city's St John the Methodist Church and films about climate change were shown at the Steiner Academy in Much Dewchurch and the Oxford Arms in Kington.
"About 50 people took part in the march and we finished by singing at All Saints Church," said Wendy Harvey, from Climate Action Now in Hereford.
"I think some people aren't well informed about climate change or, if they are, they are a bit scared about what they hear.
"It was a brilliant week and we had a quite a good gathering of people signing the climate change book.
"A group of people also spoke to Jesse Norman, who said that he wants us to come up with some measures that he can support if he can.
"We want our MP's to listen to experts about renewable energy."
