Eco Group Honoured in Green Awards

Fantastic result for the team.

A CHURCH of Scotland congregation has been honoured for its environmental work in a prestigious UK-wide green awards ceremony.

The eco-group of Inverkip Parish Church was shortlisted in the Church Times Green Awards in the Green Congregation category – the only Church of Scotland congregation to be shortlisted at the awards, which took place in London on Monday. The church set up an eco-group in 2016 and has made remarkable progress, according to Convener, Hilary Cameron.

Outlining the work undertaken by the congregation, Hilary explained:The group was recognised for their significant achievements in just over 12 months since they were formed through having monthly Fairtrade stalls, recycling everything from postage stamps to bat dirt, supporting the youth club building a bug hotel and organising litter picks in the local area.”

Hilary and the church’s Depute Session Clerk Morag Cowe attended the award ceremony at Lambeth Palance. They were presented with a highly commended certificate by the Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Rev Nick Holtam.

Eco Congregation

Two members of the Church Eco group attended the annual Keep Scotland Beautiful It’s Your Neighbourhood seminar and awards in Stirling on 31 October 2018. The day was packed with presentations from speakers from many very inspirational projects across the country with the emphasis very much on the Year of Young People, including local young person Mhairi McCann who is a YoYP Ambassador.
The group were delighted to be awarded with their Level 4 - Thriving certificate following the assessors visit during the summer.
