St John's has an active Environmental Commmittee. As a local Church, we aim to realise the responsibility we have and to take the practical steps necessary to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustain the life of the earth that all created things might flourish. We want to promote the concept of 'Enoughness' amonst our community.
We have now developed an Environmental Policy which can be seen here POLICY
In addition there is now an opportunity to find a new home for unwanted items e.g. furniture, clothes, building materials (that are in a reasonable condition) rather than sending it to landfill. Please see the following local Ilkley Freecycle group for further information:-
The St John's Environmental Committee is always keen to hear of new initiatives and ideas to share with others to combat CO2 emissions and help our community reduce its own carbon footprint. If you would like to contribute or join the Group please contact Sylvia Walker. If you are interested in studying the issue of climate change in more detail please see the separate folder on climate change and follow the various links.
