HILARY Shibata hosted the final event in her Mayor's Appeal for Sustainability at

Saffron Walden Town Hall on Saturday.

Hundreds of people attended the Carbon Footprint Show, which gave advice to people to reduce global warming.

Mayor Shibata said: "I was very pleased to see that so many people in Saffron Walden wanted to calculate their carbon footprint and find out where they stood.

"It was encouraging to know that for many, this was the first step in thinking about what they can do to help stamp out global warming.

"Knowing how we compare with the averages for things, such as the energy we use to heat and light our homes, makes it easier to see where we can make small changes that can have a big effect."

The children's corner at the event also proved popular.

"It was very busy and we had some wonderfully imaginative coloured footprints made by the children which created a very bright display," the mayor said.

"And the Toyota Prius hybrid car in the Market Square demonstrated that a new age of environmentally friendly super cars is already dawning.
