It's 7.30pm to raise a glass to green issues at get together in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 22nd Feb, 2018 Updated: 23rd Feb, 2018   0

ANYONE concerned about the state of the Redditch environment, from the impact of the Eastern Gateway to the profusion of plastic, is invited to a ‘Green Drinks Evening’ organised by Bromsgrove and Redditch Green Party.

The aim is to highlight some of the effects of development, its impact on local wildlife and the natural world and to work out what can be done to save it – and you don’t have to be a party member to join in.

“The building planned for the Eastern Gateway is likely to have a dramatic effect of wildlife including the wildlife reserve in Winyates Green,” said local activist and artist Steve Pound.

“A lot of people have expressed concerns so this would be e a great opportunity to get together and see what can be done.

“Also the phasing out of plastic packaging is something that needs to happen fast with islands of plastic bottles and rubbish stretching for hundreds of miles across our oceans.

“Bring back the milkman and his electric milk float, bring back the pop man too! Bring back glass!”

The event is billed as ideal for anyone with even a remote interest in green issues and is an opportunity to discuss these issues and more in a friendly and informal setting.

It’s in the back room of the Golden Cross pub on Hewell Road, Redditch at 7.30pm on Wednesday, February 28 – and non-alcoholic green drinks will also be served.
