King’s Lynn celebrates Earth Hour Press release

 

On Saturday 19 March 2016, at 8.30pm King’s Lynn will join millions across the world to celebrate Earth Hour when we switch off the town’ s stunning light shows for one hour to show we care about the future of our brilliant planet.

 

King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council have joined forces with KLimate Concern to

take part in a symbolic moment to put a spotlight on the issues, particularly climate change,  facing our beautiful planet and to remind us that, together, we have the power to make change happen.

 

To celebrate the global event, King’s Lynn will be:

 

  • Switching off the illuminations of our Heritage Buildings at 8.30pm on 19 March for one hour.
  • Encouraging our all local businesses, organisations and families to participate by switching off their lights at the same time.
  • Join our Earth Hour events: come to a candlelit vigil on the Saturday Market place at 8:30pm and/or an indoor, musical vigil at the Friends Meeting House in 38 Bridge Street PE30 5AB, followed by a social get-together at 9:30 at the same venue.

 

Daphne Sampson of KLimate Concern said: “We are proud to take part in Earth Hour and are excited to be involved with such a great and inspiring event. Everyone can make a difference to help protect our planet and we all have a key role to play.  We are delighted that the Borough Council have been so positive about playing an active role in this too and would like to thank Councillor Brian Long for his support”

 

Over the last decade, WWF’s Earth Hour’s unique display of darkness has become a global phenomenon. In 2015, a record-breaking 172 countries and some of world’s most famous buildings including Big Ben, Hong Kong’s skyline and the Sydney Harbour Bridge joined the global celebration. In the UK alone, over 10 million people took part, along with over 4,800 schools, 200 landmarks and thousands of businesses and organisations.  Everyone can join the celebration for WWF’s Earth Hour on Saturday 19 March 2016.

KLimate Concern is a local group, meeting at least once a month, and raising awareness of climate change issues.
