Love Where You Live
Do you love where you live? Do you want to make a difference in your local community?
We are supporting a campaign by Keep Britain Tidy to empower residents to love where they live. By joining our campaign you can help us to look after and improve the area where you live, by being the eyes and ears of your community.
A packed schedule of more than 50 free events has been organised by the Wyre Forest Green Alliance to celebrate living greener, happier and healthier.
From Saturday 30 April to Sunday 15 May, you can find out how you can live more sustainably and the changes you can make to help protect the planet for future generations to enjoy.
As part of our Love Where You Live campaign, we will be running free workshops on electric vehicles in some of our car parks and an interesting talk on biodiversity.
Green Festival – St Peter’s Community Church and Growing Roots Community Allotment
There will be a Growing Roots Green Fair on Saturday 14 May at St Peter’s Community Church as part of Sustfest.
The church is inviting anyone who either has a skill, interest/knowledge of eco activities or handmade/craft items to sell to be part of the festival.
They are also looking for people to help with planned activities, such as demonstrations, pop-up café or gardening information.
Stalls are available for a suggested £5 donation. This is only suggested, no one will be turned away if they cannot afford it.
Confirmed activities at the fair include; scarecrow building, making CD bird scarers, planting and decorating a tyre, sea shanty singing, talk from Worcestershire Wildlife and much more!
There is a monthly community markets scheme at St Peter’s Church, Kidderminster on the last Saturday of every month.
It gives local small businesses an opportunity to sell their products and services.
We are working with local litter picking groups to help them get new equipment and signage.
Are you part of a local litter picking group and need help?
Please get in touch with us by emailing our Health and Sustainability Officer.
Training and education are helping communities feel a sense of pride and help improve the district.
