Parc Penallta is set to host a special event for WWF’s Earth Hour on Saturday 24th March.
Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Earth Hour celebrations will make a big splash with an invitation for people to gather under the stars for an oceanic themed party at Parc Penallta.
Working in partnership with Head4Arts and Caerphilly Parent Network, the event is aimed at the whole family, taking participants on a lantern-lit journey inspired by sea creatures.
The festivities kick off at 7pm with a lantern parade, followed by storytelling, craft activities, folk music and hot refreshments.
The event highlights the threats facing our seas as a result of climate change and offers an opportunity to make a pledge for actions that will help protect them. There will also be the first screening of a special motion graphic film using artwork created by local school children to raise awareness of the effects of increased water temperatures on sea creatures.
Cabinet Member responsible for Countryside services Cllr. Nigel George said, “Every year we join people across the world to participate in WWF’s Earth Hour event. It is vital that we show our unity and join the masses to educate people on the threats climate change will bring. This event is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to get involved and participate in some fun activities.”
