Free green event at Hardwick Hall

Families keen to find out how to kick start a greener lifestyle will get their chance during a special Go Green event at Derbyshire’s Hardwick Hall on Sunday 28th August.

The National Trust owned estate, near Chesterfield, will be showing just how easy it is to become environmentally friendly with a full programme of activities, demonstrations and displays designed to inspire.

Between 11am and 4pm, there will be the opportunity to pick up energy saving tips and ideas on recycling as well as buy sustainable products and try out organic and local foods.

The event, which takes place in what will be Hardwick’s newly extended visitors facilities in the Stableyard, is free with a small charge of just £2 for car parking.

Among the activities planned for children are a range of eco games and the option to make bug homes or recycle plant pots and plant seeds. Meanwhile adults can check out the recycling roadshow, charcoal making and sawmilling or have a go at pole lathing.
