and from Marches Climate action about the Save The Wye campaign Saturday 11 March. The next action is in planning. This will build on our Marches Climate Action actions last July, last September, last month, and last Saturday. We’ll aim to bring in even more groups and bigger numbers too. The time is right: pressure is hotting up nicely on Tesco / Avara / Cargill, here and in the USA. So much so that there was even a Times headline and article this week practically stealing our own Cheap Chicken Ain’t Cheap slogan! Click here to read the article.

There’s going to be much, much more; if you want to join in,  email your mobile number to marchesclimateaction@gmail.com and we’ll join you to a chat group.


NEW Talk about Swifts by  Peta Sams of South Shropshire Swift Group arranged for Friday 21st April from 7-9pm at the Forbury Chapel


A new Government-published report – the ‘Net Zero Review’ – has backed exactly what we are campaigning for. Its leading recommendation for more clean community energy: “Government should commit to the Local Electricity Bill.”
It says: “Current regulations in the energy market mean that community energy projects cannot directly supply local communities, an issue which the Local Electricity Bill seeks to address.” Your MP Bill Wiggin is not yet one of the 317 MPs who support the Bill. But this high-profile report directly recommending the Bill has the potential to change his mind.

Could you please, therefore, write to Bill Wiggin and ask him to join the 317 MPs who support the Local Electricity Bill as recommended by the recent Net Zero Review?

  • A short message in your own words is most effective
  • Your MP’s email address is bill.wiggin.mp@parliament.uk
