Annual Green Festival - Saturday August 11th 2018
Annual Green Festival Returns to Peterborough! Peterborough’s annual Green Festival – one of the longest running and biggest environmental festivals in the whole of the UK – is coming to Nene Park! The charity PECT, who organises the event, is delighted to announce that the festival will be taking place at Ferry Meadows on Saturday 11th August, with activities taking place from 10am. The festival offers plenty of fun for all the family and encourages visitors to discover how to live more sustainably, whilst promoting and celebrating environmental initiatives across the city and beyond. Bringing together a variety of stalls from organisations such as Buglife, RSPB and Nenescape, plus a wide range of eco-activities for all ages, The Green Festival celebrates everything ‘green’ in Peterborough. The Festival will include cooking demonstrations, den building, willow weaving workshops, bug hunts, live performances, arts and crafts and much more.

Tree Planting – A Forest for Peterborough
The city we live in – its environment, local communities and wildlife – would all benefit from increased tree coverage, so we’re aiming to plant one tree for every person in Peterborough. Planting days are varied due to location and can be in a woodland or urban environment, open fields or farm site. Each day starts with a lesson about how to plant a tree with question time and information about the site we are planting at. Once everyone is happy we can then begin to mark out with tree stakes were to plant each tree and begin planting. Volunteer tree planting days running October to March. To see our full list of planting days, visit www.pect.org.uk/events/. To get involved, speak to Project Officer Simon Belham on 07715 372432 or email forest@pect.org.uk. #ForestforPeterborough
