Earth Hour

Thanks to all those who came to our ‘Earth Hour’ celebration – and to the ‘Old Dancer’ for hosting our candle lit sing-song.

Our belated event was a great success.  Doug once again led us at the piano and John gave his now obligatory rendition of the ‘Manchester Rambler’.

And an update from the WWF:

“The entire world witnessed the Earth Hour phenomenon sweep across the planet in its eighth year as Earth Hour 2014 broke all records of mass participation across the world as hundreds of millions of people became everyday super-heroes for the planet.

Earth Hour 2014, proved the movement is now stronger than ever with the event observed in over 162 countries and over 7000 cities, creating magical lights off moments in every continent of the world. The symbolic hour has grown into the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, with beyond the hour activities and initiatives happening throughout the year.”
