●● THE SE­COND in the new sea­son of Lan­g­ley Lec­tures will be a talk by Colin Fen­wick about cli­mate change.

The se­ries take place each New Year for res­i­dents to gather for lec­tures on a va­ri­ety of sub­jects while rais­ing money for char­ity.

They aim to teach peo­ple about the lo­cal area and wider world, in­clud­ing top­ics such as sci­ence, pol­i­tics, health, faith and mu­sic.

The se­cond lecture of the 2016 sea­son is named Cli­mate Change – Why should you Care?

Colin has a BSc in ge­ol­ogy and PhD in geo­chem­istry and worked with sci­en­tific equip­ment used by cli­mate sci­en­tists, giv­ing him a spe­cial in­sight into that com­mu­nity.

This pre­sen­ta­tion will ex­plore the re­al­ity of what’s hap­pen­ing to our planet, from species loss to melt­ing ice sheets.

It will ar­gue that ev­ery­one should care and sug­gests we shouldn’t be afraid of mov­ing to a low car­bon fu­ture.

Colin was di­ag­nosed with mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease in 2010 and fin­ished work­ing in 2013.

This lecture will be pre­sented by Ian Ste­wart.

The talk is on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 20 at 7.45pm, at Lan­g­ley Chapel, on Main Road, Lan­g­ley.

It is one of seven lec­tures. They are open to ev­ery­one and a sug­gested do­na­tion of £2.50 is re­quired.

Money goes to East Cheshire Hospice, the Rossendale Trust and Just Drop In. ●● THE NEXT meet­ing of Sut­ton Parish Coun­cil will take place on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 12.

Coun­cil­lors meet at Sut­ton St James Church hall at 7.30pm and ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend to hear dis­cus­sion on lo­cal is­sues.
