By Jennifer Grey

Award-winning Australian adventurer, environmentalist and writer Huw Kingston is in Askrigg this week to prepare for a major talk he is giving to a global audience in Athens on 2 June (at TEDx Athens).

‘Message in a Bottle’, concerns the issues of plastic pollution and in particular bottled water, an issue Huw has long been engaged with including making his home town in Australia, Bundanoon, the first bottled water free town in the world.

Huw will be rehearsing his talk in Wensleydale Sport and Leisure Centre, Askrigg, today,  Thursday, May 24, at 7pm and would like an audience.

The talk is about 20 minutes followed by Q&A. All welcome.
