We are grateful to the groups who gave up their time to support the event, including the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Butterfly Conservation and the Shed. the British Trust for Ornithology attended and in the church was an exhibition of photographs taken in the churchyard as part of the garden bird survey, run by the BT, for which the churchyard is a registered site. The Bee Depot was kept busy talking about the bees they had on display and all the lovely products that come from the bee’s labour. The Mother Union stand was full for items, made during lockdown, that used up all the odd pieces of wool and fabric that might otherwise have been thrown away.
Dilton Garden Club was on hand to show how we can help nature in our own gardens.
Traidcraft goods and products were available as their commitment to the environment is just as important to them as social and trade justice.
Thanks also go to all the ladies who provided cakes and refreshments to our visitors.
On Sunday, during the morning service the Venerable Archdeacon Alan Jeans, MBE, presented the church with a Eco Church bronze award. Now to aim for Gold!!
We hope to repeat Eco Day again and hold some workshops and provide information on recycling. All things we can do to helpthis wonderful planet.
