On Tuesday 2nd September Gosport and Fareham Friends of the Earth will be showing a fascinating film called "Into Eternity", about the problem of nuclear waste. Following the construction of the world's first permanent repository in Finland, the film asks the question "How can we warn future humans to stay away - for the next 100,000 years?"
This is part of their First Tuesday programme of events. On the First Tuesday of each month, they'll be hosting an evening of film or talk on environmentally topical issues, with opportunities for Q&A and discussion.
Come and join them at 7:30pm on 2nd September, in the Methodist Church on Stoke Road, Gosport.

On Saturday 6th September the Hampshire and Isle of Wight branch of Butterfly Conservation are planning a visit to the Beacon Hill National Nature Reserve, in the South Downs near Warnford, Hampshire.Â They will be meeting at 10.30am in Beacon Hill car park.
From the A32 turn immediately left into the village of Exton, pass the Shoe Inn pub and then follow the track known as Shoe Lane into Beacon Hill Lane. (These are very narrow lanes with few passing areas).Â After about 1.5 miles the car park is on the right.
They will be exploring a large tract of chalk downland and hope to see Silver-Spotted Skippers, the Brown Argus and even, if it is a favourable year, the Clouded Yellow.
Beacon Hill is very steep in places. There are wonderful views of the Meon Vally with birds and flora to be seen.
