ANOTHER WAYNWRIGHT – ENCOURAGING SUSTAINABLE LIVING
We are a community organisation committed to minimising our impact on the environment, promoting local food production and local businesses and building a stronger community through practical activities and campaigning.
BACKGROUND TO ANOTHER WAYNWRIGHT
In 2018 16 year old Amy Bray helped her parents Chris and Emma establish a new zero waste shop in Penrith called ‘Another Weigh’. See https://www.anotherweigh.uk/about-us/
In January 2019 ‘Another Way’ was founded as a charity by Amy with a mission to empower people to change their own lives for the health and happiness of themselves, their community and our planet. See https://www.another-way.org.uk/history/
‘Another Waynwright’ represents the official launch of this charity which has attracted plenty of high profile support both locally and nationally. See https://www.another-way.org.uk/another-waynwright/
The launch of Another Way involves a hopefully record-breaking attempt for ‘the most people to simultaneously summit each of the Waynwrights in the Lakeland fells’ in order to highlight the need to bring our planet back from the brink of disaster.
This event aims to encourage as many people as possible to venture out onto the Lakeland Fells in Cumbria, specifically the 214 Waynwright Fells, to demonstrate their commitment to the conservation and protection of the physical and natural environment and help spread the message that we need to live more kindly towards our planet.
I would like to invite Sustainable Brampton (SB) supporters and South Tyne Sustainability (STS) members to support this excellent initiative by taking a group to climb a local Wainwright, ideally in the northern fells, on Saturday 31st August, to be on the summit by 1pm. I have registered as an ambassador to climb Carrock Fell and have also offered to conduct a litter pick on selected routes to the top. If anyone wishing to take part has other suggestions for a relevant activity please let me know.
Sue Seymour of STS has offered to drive the Brampton Minibus on the day so I am looking for up to 17 people who would like a day out on the fells with a purpose. You will just need suitable walking attire, a pack lunch and a pair of work gloves for the litter pick.
Even if you can’t join us do try and read the WHAT CAN WE DO section of the website https://www.another-way.org.uk/learn-what-can-we-do/ including a guide to going plastic free (a downloadable leaflet). You can also find links to some major scientific reports through the LEARN section if you are interested in reading further. Finally, you can even make a PERSONAL PLEDGE here https://www.another-way.org.uk/get-involved/ .
Please let me know by 15 Aug if you would be interested in taking part in some way.
