Where are we now?
We are proud to say that we have achieved the ‘Silver’ award level of the A’Rocha scheme. We intend to build on this and achieve Gold by recycling more, encouraging our church members and other churches to follow environmentally sensitive policies, and looking after our site (the churchyard) to promote ecological diversity and the wellbeing of the natural world.
We have “recycling” boxes in the entrance to the Church and Hall where you can leave batteries, old mobile phones, stamps, spectacles and printer cartridges! These can often be sold to raise funds for the needy or passed to charities who can use them. We also can help with the recycling of many other things - contact us if you want to find a home for any of the following!
- Cat and dog food pouches washed and dried, facial wipes empty packets
- Pens, hi lighters, felt tips
- Toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes (or any medication tubes minus as much of the product out as possible)
- Any plastic tops (table sauces washing machine liquid, milk, pop) Ring pulls, Plastic bread bags,
- Bubble wrap, the outside plastic from loo rolls and kitchen rolls
- Ladies bras (go to cancer charity) or if not usable get recycled for the charity
- Crisp packets (flat no crumbs, only those with the silver lining), Pringle tubs
- Watches, computers, laptops, printers, keyboards, monitors, mobile phones, any type of line phones, speakers
- Coffee pods including used coffee, batteries, stamps, spectacles, hearing aids, computer cables, ink and toner cartridges
We also try to feed the birds, encourage native wildflowers to grow in our grounds, and welcome people to use our space to relax - but please do so responsibly and do not leave litter! That’s what the bins and recycling boxes are for.
