MEMBERS of Thornton-le-Dale Women's Institute (WI) have taken part in a national initiative to highlight climate change.

People across the country were urged to "show the love" for all things affected to draw attention to changes in the world's climate last month.

The WI in Thornton-le -Dale knitted, crocheted and sewed green hearts to decorate The Green and made green heart badges to distribute to members and others.

A small, but dedicated, team led by Mary Richardson and Pauline Closier held workshops to make the hearts ready for the display which was timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day.

WI members attached bunting, garlands, hearts and notices, to explain the purpose of the display, to the railings and trees on The Green.
