Alnwick Old Town in a Changing Climate is the topic of an event organised by the civic society.

Friends of the Earth, and a DCHS student, have been invited.

They will be discussing the threats that climate change could bring to the historic environment of Alnwick and what steps can be taken locally, regionally and nationally to remove or mitigate them.

The event open to the public. Entry and parking on site is free and refreshments are available at 6pm.

Please bring your climate questions along with you to be put to the panel.

Meanwhile, a fourth climate change demonstration is also being planned in Alnwick.
