On 6 November SR sisters joined in action on the march in central London.
Closer to home, our Read and Recycle stall at the Climate Action Fair in St John’s Churchyard Leytonstone raised £88 for Solace Women’s Aid, our charity in 2021. We met and shared ideas with other stall holders representing a range of environmental charities. The stall provided a great opportunity to recycle books as well as provoking a lot of interest in SRWI and the action the WI supports on Climate Change.
At our benefit on 13 November, Fliss of the Cajun band Joli Blon played and offered up a special hat she had got there, designed by satirical artist and climate activist Darren Cullen. The auction for it was fiercely competitive and raised another £35 for Solace!
So after all this action, what’s next in 2022 for SR climate activists? Waltham Forest Council has developed a Retrofit Home with Aston Group; we are planning a visit for February 2022. And of course we continue our ‘Climate Corner’ hints and tips in our own monthly Stone Rangers newsletter.
