11am - 2.30pm
The next Big Green Day will be on
Sunday 25 September 2022.
See details below on the last event.
This day is an opportunity for us all to engage with our local community and encourage local action on climate change individually. Collectively the event is also part of the national Great Big Green Week that is taking place from 18th to 26th September.
Around the churchyard there will be
a compost workshop,
a make-your-own tote bag demonstration and
a clothes mend-and-repair help desk
where you can bring in items that need some attention and
be shown how to fix them
In the Eden Nature Garden you can
go on a tour of the garden,
participate in a seed swap and
Key Stage 2 children can make a flower out of recycled materials at home/school to bring or make on site to enter in a
creative art competition
Especially for kids we will have
a Quiz on plastics,
a Nature search and
a Big planet collage
