This weekend, Cambourne will host a two-day festival of live music, art, and wild activities, with all of the proceeds going to help wildlife.

‘Cambourne to be Wild’ is being sponsored by Amey and the proceeds from the event will go to the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Northamptonshire. The Wildlife Trust have made significant effort to minimise waste from the festival, serving drinks in biodegradable cups and providing free drinking water instead of single-use plastic water bottles. Local Cadets are also volunteering at the festival, helping to collect litter and ensure it is put into the correct recycling bins.

Amey welcomes this move to reduce waste and the Wildlife’s Trusts adherence to the three ‘R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.”
