Hoping to paddle up more oarsome support for region

Evesham Editorial 4th Nov, 2018   0

A FLADBURY campaigner has taken his fight to raise awareness of climate change to the main charged with putting the Midlands on the map as an investment destination for global businesses.

David Train met with Sir John Peace, the chair of the Midlands Engine, who signed the Paris and LA Paddles for Life, already signed by Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt and many other political and sporting leaders.

The Midlands Engine is a coalition of councils, combined authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP), universities and businesses across the region, actively working with Government to build a collective identity to present the Midlands as a competitive and compelling offer which is attractive at home and overseas.

The campaigner told the Observer: “I left Sir John with the painting by Fladbury artist Joe Walton, showing our vision of how the Midlands can inspire all on board in the world to tackle the climate change problem.

“Our aim now is to inspire Donald Trump to take part alongside the Mayor of Los Angeles, who’s city hosts the 2028 Olympics.

“In the painting you wil lsee Meghan Markle at the helm of the ‘Spirit of Fladbury and the Climate Revolution’ being gently pointed towards the Mayor of LA and President Trump, together aboard the ‘Spirit of Los Angeles and the Climate Revolution’.

“If we achieve this Olympian aim it will be a world story for all in the Vale and the Midlands,” he added.
