LOCAL people will be challenged to help tackle climate change at a special roadshow in one Yorkshire Dales town next month.

Residents in Northallerton will be asked to work out their own carbon footprint - and then see how they can reduce it at the event being organised by the town's Climate Change Action Group.

There will be free energy saving light bulbs to collect; displays on growing vegetables and buying locally and activities for children at the roadshow.

Visitors can enter a free draw to win a wind up solar powered radio and try out fair trade refreshments.

A free cup of tea or coffee will be offered to anyone who can pedal a specially adapted bike hard enough to boil the water!

The roadshow takes place on June 2nd at Northallerton Town Hall from 2-4.20pm.

The Climate Change Action Group is made up of individuals from local churches, North Yorkshire County Council, Climate Concern and Hambleton District Council.

Its development came as part of a wider remit of the 'Making Poverty History' campaign and has been a positive project in supporting the need for awareness raising on climate change.
