The first ever Green Euro MP in the North West is set to visit West Cumbria later this month.

Gina Dowding is heading to the west of the county on September 27/28.

The first day she will be in Keswick in the evening for a public meeting and showing of The Age of Stupid at Keswick Cinema and will form part of the panel discussing climate change afterwards.

The following day she heads to Cockermouth to meet stallholders at the Taste Cumbria event from 11.30am and at 12.30pm she will be in the Egremont Room at an open meeting.

The meeting is hosted by Make It Matter, a group of crafters who have come together to raise funds for the Green Party and to make offers of their time and craft work to other local groups working on climate change issues.
