4. The Climate Song Invitation:

Winchester Action on Climate Change is inviting Winchester to sing a song about the climate to send a message to politicians. You can join the ‘flash mob’ event on the streets of Winchester Sunday 3rd October at 5pm, with rehearsals at 7pm on Tuesday 28th September and 7pm on Thursday 30th at All Saints Church, Petersfield Rd or film your group playing and singing and send this to the organiser. 

To find out more about this and other events across Winchester such as a ‘community song flash mob’ visit the Winchester Green Week Facebook page.
