What: On the first Friday of every month, between 10am and 1pm, Dr Richard Erskine will provide one-to-one support to anyone with questions about climate change visiting Nailsworth Library. You are encouraged to come and have a chat, in the spirit of enquiry and discovery.

How: The approach was discussed and approved by representatives of Gloucestershire Libraries and Nailsworth Library. Every effort is made to summarise current knowledge in a form that is accessible to any age group or background that presents itself. No prior scientific knowledge will be assumed. Information provided will be based on authoritative sources such as The Royal Meteorological Society. Popular accounts of the science will be recommended for further reading, such as ‘Climate Change’ by HRH The Prince of Wales, Tony Juniper and Dr Emily Shuckburgh.
