Many thanks to Judith Alymer our campaign volunteer at Holy Ghost & St Bede Basingstoke who organised a meeting with Maria Miller MP for Basingstoke as part of our Parliament in Your Parish campaign on Thursday 10th June the evening before the G7 meeting in Cornwall. Thank you to Veronika Budzynski, James Budzynski-Seymour, Matt Lyons, Janet Standing, Joy Murphy, Tony Spiteri, Benedict Babu, for attending the meeting and sharing their concerns about climate change.
Judith told me “Holy Ghost parish in Basingstoke held a meeting with Maria Miller MP this evening which went well. While she backed the government’s position on the reduction in aid overseas as was to be expected, members of the parish were able to raise several issues about what Britain is doing to encourage cleaner energy usage in this country to help reduce further climate change.”
Why not consider organising a meeting with your local MP to share your concerns about climate change . MPs are elected to represent our views but they can only do this if we make our views known. The UK not only hosted the G7 summit last week but will be hosting the COP26 Climate talks in November so it is vital that we encourage the government to take the lead on tackling climate change.
So as Pope Francis says in Fratelli Tutti ” Let us take an active part in renewing and supporting our troubled societies ” #77
