The COP26 East Hampshire event in Alton on Friday 8th October is being hosted by Cllr Rob Mocatta and Damian Hinds.
This is a great opportunity for residents and businesses to find out what is happening locally to accelerate the move to net zero, and also to find out the steps they can take for themselves. Lord Deben will be attending us as the key note speaker, and there will also be a series of presentations, ahead of a business-focused session later in the afternoon. The exhibition that is running alongside the presentations will also provide information on the products and services that can help people take action.
You are encouraged to pre-register in advance for free entry tickets via Eventbrite www.eventbrite.co.uk and I do hope you may be able to join us during the event.

Full details are given via the Accessibility Statement below left, but in brief every webpage now has an accessibility Button at the top right. This enables users to alter such things as text size and colour contrasts, to suit their circumstances.
Any person interested has the right to inspect the accounting records of Steep Parish Council for the financial year 2020/2021. The Internal Audit has been completed.

If any Steep resident needs help during the coming months because of illness or self-isolation, there is a willing group of volunteers to assist with things such as shopping, medicine collection, dog walking and so on.
