Carey's 'Bugingham Palace'

One step on our journey to becoming more eco-church (November 2020)

One of Carey’s new ‘green team’, Bhagya Leeniyagoda, recently volunteered to create a ‘bug hotel’ for our church garden. Bhagya was doubly relieved - that her Dad, Chami, agreed to lend a hand and secondly because she didn’t have to introduce the bugs herself. Instead, she was happy to install it at the end of November by the church’s rear wall, following advice from keen gardener and botanist, Colin Hughes. We are now awaiting the first residents of this palatial structure. 

In the meantime Carey’s green team is awaiting the results of our first Lifestyle Survey, which was sent out in November. Another member of the green team, Andrew Suzmeyan, will collate the results of the survey to give our church a bench-mark as to where we are in relation to environmental awareness and action.

Together, these two steps will bring Carey very close to a bronze Eco Church award. So, thanks to Bhagya, Chami, Andrew for all your efforts, as well as to Hilary for helping with sending out the survey. Our first steps towards becoming more of an eco-church.
