We are in the midst of a Climate Emergency. ACAG's goal is to create awareness of environmental issues and promote small, manageable changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint and minimise our impact on the environment.


Short term goals of the Climate Action Group will include:

  • Gifting flower seeds to primary school leavers,
  • Reducing the use of pesticides on council-owned land and encouraging others to do the same
  • Sharing allotments sites to give beginner gardeners an opportunity to learn from experts
  • Upgrade public bins to include separate recycling sections
  • Introduce 'butt bins' to encourage smokers to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly
  • Create more water refill stations in the town

Long-term goals include:

  • Carrying out a biodiversity audit to find out more about the diversity of plant, animal and insect life in the area
  • Set up a river monitoring group
  • Investigate land suitable for a community orchard
  • Stage an Axminster Arts Festival to showcase local talent and highlight concerns for the planet
  • Make Axminster a more accessible town
