Can village ban the plastic bag?


GREEN group Low Carbon Lymm is hoping to make the village plastic carrier bag free by next year.
The group wants to encourage people to live the sustainable way – and members handed out more than 300 reusable linen bags during a plastic bag free day.
The linen bags were made and decorated by Su Williams and some of the children from Lymm Youth Club.
During the day volunteers from LCL were in local shops talking to people about going plastic bag free and said most shoppers supported the idea.
A spokesperson said: “The group has the ambition that the village will be bag free by 2012 and plans another similar event later in the year. In the meantime it is hoped more village residents will remember to take their reusable bags with them the next time they visit the shops.”
As part of the Lymm Festival preparations, the group have devised a Low Carbon Lymm “Green Trail” for Saturday July 2. Those taking part will be able to visit a number of homes where low carbon technologies and appliances have been installed, such as solar panels and wood fuel boilers.
A new electric vehicle will also be available and people will be able to travel around the trail the low carbon way.
Tickets and maps for the Green Trail can be picked up at the Festival Box Office in the Village Hall Annexe from Saturday June 18 or bookings can be made from the website: www.lymmfestival.org.uk
