Eco fest returns for second year

Residents, community groups, schools and local businesses are joining forces to celebrate environmentally-friendly projects and developments in the Dearne Valley.

The area’s second Eco Festival takes place on Friday, March 16, from 10am to 4pm, at the Kingswood campus - the site of the former Earth Centre in Denaby Main.

The event will celebrate some of the work that has taken place in the Dearne Valley over the last year, including projects with young people as part of the Eco-Schools programme.

Updates will also be given on activities that are organised in the area over the next 12 months.

Joanne Wehrle, Dearne Valley eco-vision project manager, said: “We hope people will come along to find out more about how they can get involved. Residents and groups can also take part to help shape the future of the Dearne Valley, putting forward suggestions for what communities can do to save energy and money and to address climate change.”
