School to spend an hour in darkness to raise awareness for climate change
by David Raven

A SCHOOL will spend an hour lit only by candle light to raise awareness of the threat of climate change.

Between 9.05am and 10.05am pupils and teachers at Bedford Primary will turn all of the school's lights and projectors off on Saturday (March 26).

The hour will come to an end with a special assembly to be held by the head teacher.

A spokesperson for the school said: “Bedford’s Earth Hour is a chance to show our community that we care and that we can all do a little bit to protect our natural world. ”We hope that by holding our own Earth Hour we will encourage our family and friends to think more about how they waste precious resources.“

Bedford Primary is keen to pass on their message to their friends and family and is asking their community to register at to show their support.
