THE DEAN of Green has been at work in Scarborough.
The local Anglican diocese – stretching from Hull to Middlesbrough – declared 2011 the Year of the Environment.
As part of the project an event was held at St Mary’s Church in the Old Town.
This included Fairtrade stalls, chocolate tasting, a demonstration of a water filter and a survival tent and gear used in disaster areas – including in the wake of the Japanese earthquake.
Lay chairman of the deanery Ros Brewer said: “The event was to show how the church community is involved in environmental issues and we can all make a positive difference.”
Roger Burnett, from Scarborough Council, led bug hunts and bird box building.
Children also made paper and cloth bags and there was an angels and gargoyles walk which included St Martin’s Church, the prison in Dean Road and the cemetery.
