Join in the ‘green’ weekend

CHURCHES across Scarborough are holding an Environment Weekend as part of the Diocese of York’s Year of the Environment.

The weekend will start at St Mary’s Church in Castle Road from 10am on Saturday, when Green councillor Dilys Cluer will open the Waste Not – Want Not! event.

Ros Brewer, lay chairman of Scarborough Deanery, said: “Everyone is welcome to come and join in the fun. It’s free admission and there will be lots to do and learn about saving the environment. Many organisations from across the town will be there to share their expertise and information and the Energy Trust will be on hand to give advice about grants available in providing energy saving measures.”

On Sunday there will be a beach art event. Participants are asked to meet on the beach, near the Sea Life Centre, from 2pm.

The event will be suitable for all ages but under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. The session will include a scavenger hunt, beach artwork and a giant poster of rock pool creatures which everyone will help to create together.

There will also be an Angels and Gargoyles Walk, for a view some of the more unexpected art work on view around Scarborough, starting from St. Martin’s Church, off Ramshill Road, South Cliff at 2pm and will take approximately two hours, finishing at St Mary’s Church.
