The Importance of Nuclear Power for a Sustainable Future

Friday 22nd March in the Village Church.

Dr David Bradbury is a nuclear scientist and inventor who has spent his career working in the nuclear power industry. He will be talking and answering questions on the past and future of nuclear power and its place in the debate about sustainability and climate change. We are promised a lively and interactive evening!

David’s activities outside science include a keen interest in music and composition, and he will be known to many in Shipton Moyne for his role as an organist in St John the Baptist church.
