This month we are focusing on keeping our surroundings tidy – litter is also bad for wildlife and the environment as well as looking unsightly.
The Eco-Act for September is to encourage you to be part of a litter pick/clean up.
Easy: Clean the area on the street in front of your house.
Medium: Join an organised litter pick.
Advanced: Do a daily litter pickup when you go for your daily walk / run.
Let us know what you have picked up via our FB group St John’s Eco-Church. Also please keep the Nang bottles (silver canisters) as they can be recycled / will be used for artwork by an organisation in Addlestone.
Harvest Festival Services—Sunday 4 October
Please drop off your contributions of dried goods, etc. during Open Church from 28 September. The church will be also open on Saturday 3 October. These will be distributed to those in need in the local community.
Friday 25 September
Valuation Day in the Easter Centre 10am to 4pm. Martin & Pole, auctioneers, will give you a valuation on your items. We will ask for a donation to the Easter Centre and give you the option to sell at an auction. Please bring your antique furniture, pictures, ceramics, collectables, silver and jewellery and find out “what it’s worth”. Photographs of large heavy items are welcome so this will save you carrying them. If you are unable to attend on the day and have items to value or require more information, please contact Phil on 01784 473750 for more information.
