In May 2021 Albury Parish Council agreed that we must play our part in the Climate Change Emergency and a Climate Change working group was formed (Albury Climate Emergency - ACE). Since then, we have had several people from the parish who have come forward to help and to create and take ownership of a plan. There are many reasons we need more to come forward to help, in any way possible, as this affects us today, our children and their children. Why not join us and help preserve the unique character of Albury?
If you would like to be involved, please contact Stuart Bevan at email@example.com
Albury Environmental Survey
The Climate Change Group would like to know residents’ views on climate change and what we can do to make our parish greener and help shrink our carbon footprint. We are just about to launch a survey and will publish the results soon.
