Introducing reLEAF
Following on from the Parish Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency in June, it has been working with Zero Carbon Haddenham (ZeroCH) to identify key ways to help the Parish become carbon neutral by 2030. ZeroCH, formerly known as Haddenham in Transition, proposed a tree planting programme called reLEAF, which aims to double the tree cover in the Parish in the next 10 years. We are pleased to announce that reLEAF will be the first joint project between the Parish Council and ZeroCH. Further details on the project can be found in the Releaf proposal document. Alternatively, ZeroCH will be at the Greener Living fair on Sunday 29th September, from 1.30 - 4pm, in Haddenham Village Hall. If you would like to be involved in reLEAF, you can also contact releaf@zeroch.org.
