From the Committee 

Thanks to the team for getting another great newsletter together. I’m Jen Griffiths, Acting Chair until the AGM next month, which I am looking forward to, as well as Nolan Hunter’s wonderful Firepit Yarning session, and the Forest Festival PHCCIG stall.

Thanks to Stephan for all his work over the past 12 months  as Chair, steering this group to all we’ve achieved – it has been wonderful to have worked and learned from you! Stephan will still be around, of course, bringing his knowledge and skills to the Committee.

We had a strategic planning meeting a few weeks ago which was a great opportunity to revisit our overall vision and values. Look out for some new information about that over the coming months.

Finally, I’d like to encourage any and all to consider putting your hand up for the Committee. I have learned so much from everyone, had such a great time working on our projects and would highly recommend it if you feel overwhelmed by the climate crisis. Action helps both you and the earth!
