The environmental-based programme kicked off in February covering subjects including energy initiatives, decluttering and net-zero carbon emissions.

It is hoped that Guardian journalist and BBC presenter Lucy Siegle will return to Oundle to give her talk about green and clean fashion.

The season of talks was to finish with Closing The Loop – towards the Circular Economy scheduled for Thursday, April 2 and two further events on Thursday, May 7, and Thursday, June 4.

Camilla added: "We hope to rearrange the talks for a later date."

The Oundle Waste Less (OWL) project is run by Transition Oundle whose activities include running regular repair cafés, establishing zero waste shop Refill Revolution in Oundle, promoting the water bottle refill scheme, supporting waste reduction and recycling initiatives in businesses, schools and local organisations.
