The parish CAFOD team has been successful in obtaining the Live Simply registration certificate. Our parish has already made a commitment to live and act sustainably and in solidarity with those less fortunate, and the certificate recognises the plan of action we have already put into practice.
We have installed photo-voltaic panels on the roof of the hall, changed the light bulbs to LED, bought Fair Trade products, set up a successful stall and other events to raise money for CAFOD, supported a parishioner working with refugees, collected goods and money for refugees in Calais, shared local produce, and (pre-Covid) produced regular Live Simply/CAFOD updates with hints on how to cut down waste and live more sustainably.
Now (we hope) Covid restrictions are easing the team is getting back to work, and hope to be present at the Fressingfield Produce Market once more in July. In order to get the final Live Simply parish award we need more people to join in this effort.
