Festival Hall Refurbishment Project

Petersfield Town Council are investigating ways in which we can make the building more eco-friendly as part of the Festival Hall Refurbishment Project.

On Sunday 17th July Petersfield Climate Action Network (PeCAN) together with Petersfield Town Council (PTC) held Petersfield’s first ever Eco Fair!

It was a fun, informative day out for all the family where you could get tips and ideas for reducing plastic use and your carbon footprint, whether it be by saving energy in your home, upcycling those clothes you no longer want or by getting back on your bike.  Learning how you could help increase biodiversity with good gardening practice, or by letting your garden grow a little wilder.

There were talks, an art exhibition, children’s activities, and live music throughout the day, with food, drink and locally brewed beer as well as stalls selling items which were ethically sourced, using minimum packaging.

Visitors were encouraged to walk or cycle and to avoid waste by bringing reusable cups and bottles for drinks.  The event was run using batteries charged by renewable energy and bike racks were available.

What can I do?

Together we can make a difference.  The things we do in our daily lives – how we travel and power our homes, the stuff we buy and then dispose of are all affecting climate change.

Making simple, everyday changes can help save money, create healthier lives and reduce our carbon footprint.
