Nick Bolton was speaking at Wellingborough Climate Action Project’s Climate Conversation in Glamis Hall today (Saturday 5th March). The event also included other presentations from North Northamptonshire Council (see video on YouTube) and Wellingborough Eco Group. 19 delegates gave their points of view during an interaction from WCAP. The whole event was also a great opportunity for local residents to find out more about climate change.
