Baldock Represented On World Stage

6th December 2021 posted in PROPERTY NEWS

We all like to feel part of something bigger, and while Baldock isn’t the biggest town in England, it is good to know that the area was represented at the recent COP26 event. The UK hosted the event, held in Glasgow at the start of November 2021, and North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald was in attendance as part of the UK delegation.

The local MP was involved with Nature Day, which focused on finding nature-based solutions to challenge biodiversity loss and climate change.

The Conservative MP said: "It was an honour to be selected as a member of the British delegation to COP26 and to take part in so many events on Nature Day. Climate Change is an emergency and one we can tackle. It was also good to hear from committed UN ambassadors on climate change such as Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina and also to hear Ellie Goulding, as well as all the leading political figures such as ministers and experts from around the world and our own ministers such as Zac Goldsmith and George Eustice MP, DEFRA Secretary of State.”

Sir Oliver Heald also said; “It was marvellous to see the enthusiasm from across the world to tackle climate change and that although nature-based solutions vary from country to country, they all use the tools nature has given to the world to tackle climate change - whether it is restoring peat bogs, creating salt marshes or reforesting or planting mangroves and new coral. I left very hopeful of even more positive announcements from this landmark conference. I was also proud that Hertfordshire is taking action through initiatives to increase woodland and protect its habitats, for example at the Hertwood at Sandridge, a Woodland Trust initiative, and through organisations such as Baldock Rotary, our river organisations and the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.”

At Country Properties, we are keen to support efforts that tackle climate change, and in Baldock, we are fully committed to making 2022 a greener year. There are many ways to improve local surroundings, but these days, there is no denying the importance of supporting positive environmental change.

We will be environmentally proactive in 2022

At Country Properties, we care about local communities, and we want Baldock to thrive. We are committed to planting trees for every instruction we receive in the New Year.

There are many reasons why it is a great idea to plant trees in town and city areas, including:

·       Trees are essential in producing oxygen

·       Trees have a positive impact on many people’s mental health

·       Trees make the local area look more attractive

·       Trees soak up carbon

·       Trees support local wildlife

These reasons are enough for us to be committed to playing our part in planting trees in Baldock, and we hope you feel inspired to do some good in your local community.
