A march – called the Relay to COP26 – began in Cornwall in June and will finish at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow in November.

Walkers who are part of the march are due to stop in Chesterfield on Saturday – at Hasland’s Eastwood Park at 5pm and at Rykneld Square at 5.30pm.

Climate change is of concern to many people.
