River Cam debate 8 December 2020

What does the River Cam mean to you?

Tuesday 8th December at 6 p.m. ONLINE

Feargal Sharkey will lead an online debate about our rivers and saving the Cam.

The Cam and its tributaries, like other chalk streams, are in a very bad way. Sucked dry by water companies and polluted by sewage. This is a Cambridge issue, but it’s a national disgrace too. Feargal Sharkey, the former punk musician, businessman and now trout fisherman has led a remarkable campaign to stop the rot.      

Cambridge Labour Party Environment Forum (CLEF); the Federation of Cambridge Residents Associations (FeCRA); Council for Protection of Rural England (CPRE) Cambridge and Peterborough; Cambridge Friends of the Earth (CamFoE); Cambridge Schools Eco Council are proud to host Feargal’s talk and to discuss water quality and its connections to the climate emergency and economic growth.

The event promises to be exciting. Your voice as citizens is important to help us protect our chalk stream and its landscapes and wildlife

Coronavirus update 11 May

The latest detailed Government guidance unfortunately means that meetings in May cannot go ahead.  This means that the visit to Coton Countryside Reserve on May 27 is cancelled.  CNHS will review the position again in June to see if the next meeting can go ahead or not.

The detailed guidance does say you can now spend unlimited time outdoors, that you can drive anywhere to green spaces (though you cannot stay away overnight) and that you should not use public transport to get to them.  Dogs should be on lead in areas used by other people – see https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-guidance-on-access-to-green-spaces
