Sustainable Hayfield AGM

July 20th at Royal Hotel, Hayfield, 7.30pm, only lasts 20 minutes followed by a very informative and uplifting talk from Joe Margetts and Tom Aspinall from the Moors For the Future project on the underpinning science behind all the work they've been doing to conserve our local South Pennine Moors.  

This is the biggest moorland conservation project in Europe (they're the ones with helicopters delivering lime and seeds to the uplands), and has an amazing impact  on the health of the local peat blanket.

Entitled 'Carbon, Climate, Water and Wildlife - the Scientific Work to combat the Catastrophe of Bare Peat', the talk will provide illustrations of the vital importance of our local peat bogs - which store the bulk of the UK's land-based carbon - and whose steady degradation over 200 years has meant increased carbon emissions, reduced water retention, increased risk of flooding, and diminished wildlife. This is all being reversed by this inspirational project.
