Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

●● AL­MOST a hun­dred peo­ple packed into the vil­lage hall for a lecture on cli­mate change by a sci­en­tist from Lan­g­ley.

Colin Fen­wick gave the lat­est in the se­ries of Lan­g­ley Lec­tures which take place on a va­ri­ety of sub­jects while rais­ing money for char­ity.

Colin, who lives in Lan­g­ley with his wife Ali­son, gave a talk Cli­mate Change – Why should you Care?

He has Mo­tor Neu­rone Dis­ease and the lecture was pre­sented with the as­sis­tance of fel­low sci­en­tist Ian Ste­wart, who also lives in the vil­lage. Colin was able to an­swer ques­tions af­ter the talk.

Heather Self, who or­gan­ises the lec­tures, said: “We were al­most at stand­ing room only with about 100 there for Colin’s lecture.

“He took a sub­ject about which there is lots of con­tro­versy and put it for­ward with de­tailed sci­en­tific ev­i­dence in an ac­ces­si­ble way. Colin is pas­sion­ate about the sub­ject.

“He brought home how we all need to care about cli­mate change and not leave it for other peo­ple to worry.”

Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley will be giv­ing the next lecture on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 4, at 7.45pm, at Lan­g­ley Chapel.
