St Francis Church Bournville

St Francis Church Bournville held a Christmas Market and one of the "stalls" was making patterns round the font with as many pennies as we could aquire. The enormous bag of pennies went towards this. Some of the children outlined the patterns on the floor and then used their imaginations to fill in the spaces. The total collected from this effort was just under £74 and the church would like to thank everyone who gave us their pennies.

Composting at The Public

The appearance of the compost bin at the Overend St office just before Christmas, generated interesting, and often conflicting responses. Initial concerns seem to have subsided, and I can see by the amount of waste I take from the kitchen each day that the idea has truly been embraced by us all.

As the foyer installation comes to an end, what life will the compost bin and it's contents now have?
