This will be the first event run by the Holy Trinity Church Environment Group aiming to raise awareness of environmental issues within their community and to raise funds for work to improve energy efficiency in the Church. The church has identified a demand in the area for information and advice about tackling climate change and they are hoping to hold more events to promote specific aspects of environmentally sustainable living. Within the church they are hoping to raise funds to insulate the roof of the church and foil back their radiators to reduce heat loss in the building.
All the enterprises taking part will fit their criteria to be ethically responsible and they are particularly welcoming those which promote environmentally sustainable living and include stalls selling fairly traded, green, and ethical gifts, organic food and recycled wrapping.

You can also buy your British Christmas Tree in the churchyard from the Macaulay School Christmas Tree Sale, get on your bike for the pedal-powered music centre, listen to live festive music as you browse and join in festive activities including Father Christmas’ grotto and beeswax candle making.
