The original aim was to look at Climate Change and consider what we could do to spread the word relating to our individual responsibilities. We used the A Rocha guidelines to assess where our Church was on the route to be more aware of where we were in terms of being ‘green’.
We received the Bronze Award first and have now been awarded Silver.
The Silver award recognizes that we have been undertaking local litter picks, an ECO evening with all churches invited and surveys of the congregation to assess engagement. The latest litter pick was on the 1st April 2023 and has generated interest from the local community. We have a water butt on the hall for our flowers and shrubs. We are also raising money for ECO events and one of our members has stopped using her car during Lent. We encouraged members to not mow their lawn in May and we have seen an increase in bees and insects because of that.
Our website has plenty of recommendations on how to become more ECO friendly.
