With Climate Change high on the agenda currently, Whittington Castle will be hosting a whole day to help people learn how to ‘do their bit’.

The castle is hosting a ‘Good Living and Green Fair’ on Sunday, June 23 from 10-4pm.

Organiser and castle chairman Jonjo Evans believes the day is important to get the green message out.

“We wanted to get as close as we could to “Go Green Day” which is due to take place on the longest day June 21,” he said.

“This is so that we use this extra time to consider the green messages which are of national importance. The horrors of the use of plastics and the climate change emergency have been highlighted by the TV recently and I think everyone is now so much more aware of environmental issues.”

The castle is trying to its best by changing to compostable duck food bags and waste bags for its bins, eco straws and takeaway cups in the tearoom are a start.

The event is free entrance, and just £1 to park.

A great day is expected, and will be packed with activities, talks, traders and conservation groups.

You can try pond dipping, leaf rubbing and quizzes, listen to talks on permaculture and our environment, local food and produce stalls, local crafts. demonstrations of wicker work and mending, mini massages, plant stalls, RSPB, Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust, Love your magnificent Severn, among others.
