VILLAGERS in Lympstone are being urged to become more environmentally conscientious.

As part of a programme of community activities to highlight climate change issues, the Lympstone Transition Project is screening an eco-friendly-themed film, The Age of Stupid, tomorrow, November 20, in the village hall.

Tickets for the movie are on sale at the post office, priced £3.

The drama-documentary film stars Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055 watching archive footage from years ago before the world was affected by climate change.

Jill Wilson, who lives in the village, said: "We aim to help Lympstone become less of a net user of the world's scarce resources and we have produced a handy pamphlet explaining what people can do."

A group, called Feeding Lympstone, will hold an open meeting next Wednesday, November 25, in the village hall.

Jill, speaking about the group, added: "We hope this will be a way of encouraging more people to grow their own vegetables and fruit, therefore reducing their carbon footprints and keeping fit at the same time.
