Looking to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle? Come and find out how at the Learning to Live Sustainably event at Khandallah Town Hall on Tuesday, 29 October 2019 from 7-9pm.
We have an array of speakers who will offer practical advce as to how you can you adopt more eco-friendly practices in your daily habits.
