Pulham Market green hosts two residents' campaign on climate




Two friends held their own demonstration on Friday in a push for quicker action to tackle the world’s deepening climate crisis.

Hilary Hardy, 71, and Karen McKearney, 56, took to Pulham Market green to hold up a banner in support of the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, while urging society to do more to tackle climate issues.

Ms Hardy, of Station Road in Pulham Market, said: “We’ve had so many floods around here recently and it’s unprecedented.

“I wanted to raise awareness of these issues and, while I’ve been on marches before, I wanted to organise something locally myself.

“The second reading of this bill is still on hold due to Covid-19, but I’d like to see it prioritised so that we can get to grips with the climate crisis.

“If it were to become law, it would ensure we meet our national targets in regards to the Paris agreement on climate change.”
