A FORMER Olympic coach from Fladbury has met with the Danish Ambassador to push his ongoing effort in combating climate change.
David Train travelled to London to meet with Claus Grube in the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday October, 20, to get him to sign the ‘Paddle for Life’.
The idea came about earlier this year when Mr Train and his grandson Matt, visited Blenheim Palace and Winston Churchill’s grave at Blaydon.
Beside the grave was a plaque to the Danish Resistance, prompting Mr Train to get the country to join his bid in living a more sustainable life, and in the hope that it will lead to a Copenhagen regatta to promote his climate ideas.
“As many will know, Churchill was a great supporter of the European project, even if he thought Britain should not be apart of it,” said Mr Train.
“I hope to be able to raise sponsorship for the ‘Spirit of Churchill and The Energy Climate Revolution’ from the Danish community in Britain, as the flagship of the Danish Fleet,” he added.
