●● 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.
