Protect Sherwood Forest

People of Edwinstowe: Sherwood Forest needs you!
Tues 27 February — Sat 3 March 2018

Fracking firm INEOS wants to hunt for shale gas in Sherwood Forest – and its fracking plans threaten a swathe of central England. But INEOS’ invasion has awoken a sleeping legend – the legend of Robin Hood. Now he and his merry band of outlaws are riding out from Sherwood Forest to do battle with the fracking industry. Join Robin this Spring to say: no fracking in my ‘hood!

Friends of the Earth and local community group Frack Free Sherwood & Edwinstowe are organising a series of free lantern making workshops, fun family-friendly street theatre performances and a grand dress-up lantern parade.

Climate Change – Show the Love

Druid Life

February means the Show The Love campaign is underway in force again, raising awareness of climate change. Last year I took part and made a green heart. I’m recycling it this year, and will make some more for good measure. But, this isn’t about empty gesturing, nor should it be about grinding ourselves down in despair over what’s going on.

It can be tempting to protect ourselves from pain by caring less in the first place, but that can only make things worse. If people are to change for the better, then we have to keep caring.

I love trees. I grew up in a landscape of hanging beech woods – woodland clinging to the steep side of the Cotswolds. I’ve always lived in places…
