The Old Parish Curch of Peebles
Eco Congregation
The Eco Team is a small group but continues to be part of the Esk and Tweed Valley Eco Congregation Network. The church gained its second Eco Congregation Award in 2016. We operate a robust recycling programme which includes plastic bottle tops, used stamps and mobile phones as well as all the usual council -led re- cycling. Once or twice a year we form a team to tidy the church garden area and make it a pleasant space and the Guide Company which meets in the MacFarlane Hall have made a splendid 'bug hotel' at the rear of the Hall. Our Fairtrade counter is open for business every Sunday after church, offering a wide range of items for purchase. We have also begun a series of Family Walks which take place approximately every 2-3 months. Details of our activities can be found in the Magazine or on Facebook.
