We are working hard to improve our own carbon footprint. As a church we look at how we are impacting on the environment and what we can do better. A summary of our progress can be seen here.
Our garden club is working to ensure that the small outside space we have, supports the local wildlife. We think carefully about what is planted and how we maintain the land.
Two areas at the front of church have been turned into small gardens. They are planted with pollinator friendly perennials, with the divisions taken from a member’s garden.
Our Eco Group is meeting regularly and our focus is on improving and reducing our impact on the community around us. You can read about our church’s Eco journey here. We have also had a recent grant from the Quartet Community Foundation, which enabled us to insulate the roof space above the church office – see here for more details.
