Eco bronze

We have now registered with the Eco Church programme, and have obtained our first award, Bronze. There are three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold, for both individual churches and for dioceses. We will be working toward our Silver award over the coming months. There will be lots of opportunities for people to get involved as we move forward on this.
