St Peter’s Hayton get their Bronze Award

St Peter’s Church in Hayton has become the latest in our diocese to earn their A Rocha UK Bronze Eco Award.

Churchwarden Rita Smith said: “We are proud to have been awarded our Bronze Eco Award. Our initial thoughts when we were first shown the self assessment form for completion was horror. But, once over the panic, it was easily completed.

Being a rural church with a very small congregation and limited resources, we were pleasantly surprised to qualify for the Bronze Award. It made us realise that really we were already doing much for our environment. Making the next steps will be a challenge, but I’m sure with perseverance we will achieve the Silver award.”

As a diocese, we hope St Peter’s story will inspire other smaller parishes to start their Eco Award journey.
