Many thanks to Ben, Oliver, Jenson, Riley and Arlo and their leaders Carolyn and Sid from Devizes Beaver. They braved the rain on Saturday 9 November to help build a bug hotel on the canal bank by the Meeting House garden. The bug hotel was built from pallets stuffed with natural materials gathered beforehand and scavenged in the garden. We are very grateful for their help.
The bug hotel was the latest action in our Eco Church award efforts. This is a scheme to encourage churches to make their worship, buildings, grounds, outreach and lifestyles more environmentally friendly. We are working alongside other local churches to encourage each other by sharing ideas .
Devizes has three churches with awards so far and others working on it. The scheme is not just a seeking after a certificate but a way to monitor progress. For more information about the Eco Church award please go to: https://ecochurch.arocha.org.uk/
