On Saturday, Jo opened Baldernock Eco Fair, hosted by Baldernock Cut the Carbon at the Bardowie Sailing Club.
The event was organised by the voluntary group to raise awareness of the effects of climate change and important measures needed to reduce them.
In addition, Jo announced the winners and runners up in a competition for local children who have been working with a local artist. The key note speaker at the fair was Kat Jones, from the Scottish National Heritage, who demonstrated what is the world’s carbon footprint.
There was an Arts and Crafts tent, the Eco Drama Bus, the Village Storytelling Centre, Urban Roots and Bardowie Sailing Club offered rides on the Loch. Jo even had a go at powering a radio with pedal power from a bike.
Commenting, Jo said:
“I was delighted to open Baldernock Eco Fair, which is an important part of the local movement for environmental awareness. Baldernock Cut the Carbon is an important example of the great work that people in East Dunbartonshire are doing to stop the effects of climate change. Their work is a model for us all!”
