On Sunday 22 July we put up a display after Meeting for Worship about our actions to date for the Eco church scheme. We have already achieved the bronze award and are now ready to apply for the silver award. Members of the meeting were encouraged to comment on the display particularly with ideas for future actions. Members from other Devizes churches were invited to view the display because we are part of a group set up by churches Together in Devizes aiming to support each other in working on the scheme. The aim is for this to a be regular annual event.
The previous day we held one of our regular Fairtrade coffee mornings which contribute to the Eco church challenge as well as supporting Traidcraft and raising awareness of the needs of poor producers overseas. A stall explaining the work of Shared Interest, inviting investment in a scheme to lend money to fairtrade producers and companies was included.
