This is the second of my monthly letters to you and serves also as a means for me to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas!
In just over a month’s time, on the weekend of 25 and 26 January is the annual RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.
On that weekend, over 500,000 people will each spend an hour counting the birds in their garden and sending the information to the RSPB (as has been done for over 30 years). I’ll be doing it on the Sunday and I’d like to invite you round to my house to spend an hour with me, looking for birds, talking about the environment and I’ll give you a cup of tea (or coffee) and a biscuit too!
It strikes me that this is a very simple way that hundreds of MPs could show their support for the environment and actually learn (in some cases) about the environment from their constituents.
I hope you’ll be able to take me up on my offer, or do BGBW with another of your constituents or perhaps do it at your own home. Do let me know what you think.
best wishes and Happy Christmas!
