Bronze Eco award for church 

St Bartholomew's Church, Welby, is pleased to announce that it has secured a Bronze Eco Church Award certificate.

To attain Eco church status churches complete an online survey about how they are caring for God's earth in different areas of their life and work.

The survey covers the following key areas of church life:
*Worship and teaching;

*Management of church buildings;

*Management of church land;

*Community and global engagement.

The answers the churches provide enables them to collect points towards an Eco Church Award - Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Part of the work towards St Bartholomew's Eco Church status has been to create a wildlife friendly area in the churchyard which will not be mown and will be seeded with wild flower seeds this year. Two hedgehog boxes have also been installed.
