Saving the planet one EcoFest at a time in South Warwickshire

ALL things eco will be celebrated at Leamington’s Pump Room Gardens in September.

EcoFest is returning for the third year running on Saturday September 3 and will boast a whole host of green-minded activities, talks, sustainable food and music on the bandstand.

Last year, the event attracted over 2,000 visitors and is designed to help individuals and families make more environmentally-friendly and healthy choices, explore their green spaces and become more active.

This year, Leamington’s Primary Care Network will be hosting the activity tent with free health and fitness advice, fun games for families and children and have-a-go activities including yoga, boxing, dance, and sports day races.

Visitors will also be able to have a free health check, and the Primary Care Network is planning a special celebrity guest.

Coun Alan Rhead, Warwick District Council’s (WDC) spokesperson for climate change, said: “EcoFest has established itself as an important date in the district’s events calendar and has proven that people consciously want to make a difference to their environment. EcoFest is a fantastic event for families and those that are looking to take the first steps towards an eco-friendly future.

“With the declaration of Warwick District Council’s Climate Emergency there has never been a more important time for us all to look at making positive changes that will improve both our own and the planet’s health.

“Our Climate Emergency Action Plan is designed to improve our residents’ standard of living by addressing traffic congestion, improving air quality, enhancing biodiversity, and encouraging more energy efficient homes and public buildings.

“I encourage as many as possible to attend and commit to at least one change they can make that will truly make a difference”.
