Organisers of Corsham’s first Eco Fair have decided that it will now become an annual event. 

As the climate crisis intensifies, Corsham Town Council and Corsham Climate Action organised the eco fair on the High Street to help raise more awareness of the efforts that everyone must make if the planet is to be saved from catastrophe.

“The fair was focused on encouraging people to make easy, low cost, sustainable lifestyle changes by using the organisations and businesses that are operating in and around Corsham,” said Beth Searle, the council’s environmental project manager.

She added: “There were 10 stalls set up in the High Street including Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Wiltshire Digital Drive, The Plant Kitchen, Corsham Eco Churches and Corsham Climate Action and Corsham Town Council showcasing the climate action they are taking to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

“In the evening, the Pound Art Centre held a series of inspirational talks on the theme that no one is too small to make a difference.

"The whole day was full of conversations that focused on the small changes we can all make to save the planet from the climate crisis and due to the success it will now become an annual event which we hope will be bigger and better next year.”
