THERE’S just weeks to go until a whole town turns green.

Council vans have all had the green message emblazoned on them ahead of the Havant Goes Greener week.

The borough council, along with eco group Havant Transition Network and Friends of the Earth, aim to show how small changes can make a difference.

Ray Cobbett, from Friends of the Earth, said: ‘We want to encourage changes like reducing waste, supporting local shops, using the bus or bike instead of the car, buying greener energy and caring for our open spaces.

‘Throughout the week and across the borough experts will share their knowledge on eco housing, recycling, grow-your-own fruit and veg, bee keeping, saving energy and money, alternative transport and getting active.’

It culminates in Havant Park with the Family Green Fair where there will be music and entertainment alongside dozens of stalls where you can buy green products.
