Wookey Hole W.I. Report of June Meeting

 

President Jill welcomed everyone including our speakers
Steve Mewes and Shelley.

We recently had an afternoon tea party at Jills house. The
weather was kind and it was a great success.

Plans were made for a visit to the Lavender Farm in July
which we are looking forward to.

At our recent AGM we lost two committee members and gained
two new ones. Jill welcomed Pat and Lavinia to the team

and thanked Elizabeth and Rose for their hard work.

Competition cups were awarded to Jill and Jan .

Steve who is Campaign Manager for Somerset Wildlife Trust,
spoke to us about Somerset Nature and Climate change.

He grew up locally and first became interested in wildlife
when he became concerned about the plight and treatment of the whales in
our oceans

He stressed that we all have to change to improve our planet.
Some things are being done but not enough. CO 2 levels are increasing at
an alarming rate.

Somerset is a county under threat by climate change as 15%
of the county is at, or only slightly above, sea level. Extreme weather
conditions are expected to worsen

and we need to adapt and plan ahead for changes in the
future .Wildlife is being affected by the changes. I t certaily made us
think .
