On Friday, I visited Badger Wood and the Forest School Kindergarten project which is the first fully outdoor kindergarten in Gloucestershire.

The school is situated in part of the woodland at Ullenwood, Cheltenham which is an Area of Natural Beauty. Part of their ethos is to increase biodiversity and help maintain the environment of this important area. The forest school also provides an enjoyable setting for local children to benefit from outdoor play, encouraging an appreciation and awareness of environmental issues.

During my visit, I learnt more about the great work of this local kindergarten and even got involved with one of the crafts activities, making hobby horses! It is so important for our children to learn about the environment and having the opportunity to spend time outdoors is a wonderful way for them to develop vital social, language and problem solving skills.

Thank you to Mindy and Linny for inviting me and for all the work they are doing with this excellent project.

Ten Climate Actions To Celebrate

The Cotswolds

1. The UK passed the world’s first Climate Change Act over a decade ago with cross-party support. This gave us both a framework to set statutory carbon budgets and set up the independent Committee on Climate Change.

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
