A SPECIAL Climate Change Tea Party was held at Minehead Methodist Hall this Saturday as climate conscious children sent their message to world leaders.

The event included a display of artwork from 150 pupils at Exmoor schools who have passed their messages on to MEP Molly Scott-Cato, who is heading to the Climate Change Conference talks taking place in Paris this week.

The event was opened by Minehead Mayor Jean Parbrook and featured live music from local musicians Alex Cook and Steve Emmerson.

One of the organisers, Dave Voisey, said: "There were bold children who braved the terrible weather on Saturday afternoon to see their messages and art work displayed in the Methodist Hall."

"The Climate Change Tea Party was an opportunity for passers-by to add their messages to those that had already been made by the children of local schools throughout the district.

"We finished up with over one hundred drawings and messages from the children and an additional fifty from the public at the tea party. All this work has gone to Paris where it's display will be an influence on decisions made."

The Mayor, Jean Parbrook, braved the weather to support us by opening the event.

"All the people who took part did a little to help our world leaders come to a sensible decision," she said.
