Community Green Fair brings 300 folk to church's environment event

First published on: 11th September 2023

A wormery, a woodturner and organic wines were among the stalls at a Community Green Fair that brought some 300 people to one of our churches on Saturday.

All Hallows, Bardsey aimed to bring people together to share ideas on how to live more sustainably at the afternoon event in its churchyard, with 17 stallholders from around Leeds bringing ideas on how to be more ‘green’. 

Stalls included a wormery, the work of a local woodturner, organic wines and local beers, recycled clothes and crafts.  Boston Spa Green Group gave a talk in church on how to live more sustainably, with around 60 people present.

“This was our first Community Green Fair and a fantastic team effort”, said Revd Angela Hannafin.  “We want the church to be at the forefront of bringing people together to think about the importance of environmental issues.  We are grateful to everyone who helped make today such a success”.

The refreshments stall inside raised over £500 in donations, which will be spent on food for St Aidan’s, FoodShare.
