What is Earth Hour?
WWF’s Earth Hour is an annual global celebration where people switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet.
This year’s celebrations will be on Saturday 19 March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. To take part, all you need to do is sign up and switch off your lights for that one hour. It’s a symbolic and spectacular lights out display with a big message – we want to protect the future of our planet!

At this month's meeting of the Christchurch Citizens Association two members will give a powerpoint presentation with discussion to follow.
This is a very important local issue and all are welcome.
In October last year many Christchurch Residents concerned about Space for Nature and the risks of over-development responded to a very short 2 week 'Consultation' proposing a NEW STRATEGY for 'Enhancement' and Development in Christchurch Town Centre. The draft attracted much local criticism.

LOCAL DEVELOPMENT, THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY:
Many Residents concerned about Space for Nature and the risks of over-development responded to a very short 2 week 'Consultation' proposing a new strategy for 'Enhancement' and Development in Christchurch Town Centre. If adopted, this Strategy will determine Council policy for the next 20 years. £200,000 has been set aside for the Consultation exercise led by a London based firm of Architects .
A petition calling for more time and a more thorough consultation is in circulation.

Druitt Gardens in Christchurch are covenanted to be maintained as a town centre woodland and nature reserve, and a recent campaign to protect Druit trees at risk from a nearby development resulted in Area Tree Protection Orders.The Council's subsequent felling of 4 of these after damage by the Developers provoked outrage in March.
