Working together for the environment meeting ...................... update

An update on the "Working together for the environment WTFTE)" meeting.

The Clusters, Belper by Cherry Moore
Amber Valley Borough Council, Old Town Hall
As previously posted the evening was designed to feature a range of environmental issues, each one introduced by a short slide presentation; words or charts superimposed upon artworks or photographs of a local theme. The one I have chosen to reproduce here is a delightful work by local artist, Cherry Moore. It was a wonderful surprise to find that Cherry was actually attending the meeting and was enthusiastically applauded for her work. You see, boring old environment meetings can be fun.

The paintings were sourced from  http://artuk.org/ which is a search portal for 212,660 artworks created by 38,356 artists, that can be found in 3,258 UK venues. Just type "Belper" or "Cherry Moore" into the Art UK search box to find Cherry's painting ........... and many more.

Other highlights of the evening were a very informative update of Derbyshire County Councils work for the environment given by Kathryn Sowerby Warrington and a lively presentation by the Amber Valley against fracking group (ambervalleyagainstfracking@gmail.com).

Those who showed an interest in joining the new SERA branch in Derbyshire should please make contact via the supplied address. A web presence is being created right now and an inaugural meeting is planned, possibly following a second similar WTFTE evening that has been mooted in the north of the county.

Perhaps the one regret about the evening was that no topic or theme could be explored adequately; inevitable with so much ground to cover and wanting to give as much time as possible for those attending to voice their ........... as it turned out .............. expert opinions which kept the meeting presenters on their toes. Lessons have been learnt for future meetings.

The SERA Derbyshire web presence will be announced on BelperStuff as soon as
