Green Team use ‘extra Leap Day’ to support Lent Promise Initiative

On Saturday 29 February, the Green Team took the opportunity to ‘practice what they preach’ by recycling to help the environment. 

The Green Team are encouraging everyone during Lent to make a promise which helps the environment.  So, when a fir tree in the Lost Liddell Gardens was brought down by the recent high winds they decided that rather than burn the branches and release carbon dioxide into the air, they would use them to construct a wildlife hedge instead. Less that two hours later a new wildlife habitat had been created in the gardens which we hope will provide ‘homes’ for creatures such as hedgehogs, wrens and robins. 

For ideas on how you can make a Lent Promise and make a difference to the environment please see the ‘tree shaped structures’ on display at each of our churches
