Stratford Goes Wild WhatsApp Group

Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council agreed a Climate Emergency Motion last year and set up a group to see what we could do to reduce our carbon footprint and enhance biodiversity of the town.

We are aware that there are many residents in the area that would like to grow wild flowers, and have environmental ideas.  There are also community groups that may be a little more ambitious, but are unsure of where to start.

We therefore thought it would be helpful to set up a group, where people can share their ideas, experiences and offer advice.  The group has been set up on WhatsApp and is called Stratford Goes Wild.

If you are interested in joining this group of people with shared interests and can chat, seek advice and share your ideas, plus benefit from others experience, please contact Councillor Cohl Warren-Howles at

Pledge For The Planet

Stratford Climate Action are launching Pledge For The Planet.  This is a leaflet with advice as to how we can work together to make a difference.

Working with Escape Arts and supported by Stratford Friends of the Earth, the initiative will be displayed in the windows of Bell Court.  The display will illustrate a number of pledges and ways to live sustainably.

Escape Arts will be working with Bell Court and local groups, businesses and schools to create a large scale community arts installation Plastic Planet within the High Street – Debenhams windows.

Part of the project will see involvement from local schools, with prizes for different age groups.  The competition will include a number of environmental themes and encourage entries to be produced using recycled materials.

More information will be posted on this website when available.
