Carharrack Parish Council has a star in its midst – and on March 9th, that was made official.
Geoff Garbett, who has served on the council for four years, was nominated for the Environmental Star award in a competition run by local newspapers and magazines including the West Briton and Cornwall Today – and, we are delighted to report, led the field.
Members of the public were invited to nominate the person they had felt had done most for the environment, in their own way.
“I have no idea who nominated me,” said Geoff, a Green Party activist of forty years standing who has stood for parliament in two general elections. “But I have been studying the environmental history of the Lizard peninsula since 2003. It is fascinating to see the changes that have happened and are continuing into the future”.
Geoff is keen to continue his service to the community and to the Green cause, and will be standing as the Cornwall Council candidate for Carharrack, Gwennap and St Day: he deserves your support on May 4th.
