Perhaps a greater concentration on maths and science whilst at school needed ? Greater threats to the planet short term are the risks to biodiversity and pollution of the seas, together with the fact that the planet is being stripped of resources at an increasing and faster rate than ever before? Well done Newbury Town Council for a totally meaningless gesture in the face of the profligacy of the worlds largest guilty parties.

So the UK which produces a 1.1 % contribution to global warming emissions has radicalised it's school pupils whilst the real big players get on with destroying the planet ? If you are going to protest choose your polluters wisely !

As someone with a beard and a duffel coat I now feel rather marginalised ;-)

More evidence of the using of young minds for nefarious purposes ? I suspect that most of these young people spend an huge amount of their personal time glued to screens on the internet without the slightest thought about the carbon content involved globally in doing so ? They should drop the holier than thou stance and look at their own contributions first to global warming before preaching to others. Or maybe just concentrate on their education ?

Oh dear, if they don't understand why this is completely unacceptable then we really do have a problem with the council leadership team.
It's not only the political leadership that needs changing but the entire executive team as well. Better still abolish WBC all together.

Memories of Newbury / Newbury lock antique shop
« Last post by Catweazel on April 25, 2019, 07:32:52 pm »
I was wondering if anyone remembers an old antique shop that was situated in the covered 'arcade' that ran from the lock at Bridge Street and exited by the old Tudor Cafe?
I can recall passing by it whenever I used to walk that way with my mother in the 1950s. We used to put a penny in a cage that had a mechanical bird in it whenever we passed by. I have seen an old photo showing a sign saying 'antiques' by the exit near the cafe but that's all . Would love to have a name or any other memories of the shop as I have fond memories of it.
Thank you

I suppose it would be rather too much to ask that these students demonstrated a little closer to home?  Perhaps outside the school gates trying to persuade parents to walk their kids to school, or say having a litter blitz bagging up the litter which is strewn about the vicinity, or demanding the elimination of the food waste coming from primary school 'free dinners' which kids can't stomach and so forth.  No, a nice jolly to London is so much nicer - almost an extra bank holiday.

It is clear that this is now on an escalating trajectory. If allowed to continue it will not be pleasant. The powers that be need to wake up to the manipulation of our young people.
