The Dean Court Community Centre is working towards the Eco-Centres Award. We are now registered (thanks to a grant from Sovereign Housing) and have started to plan the implementation at the Centre. This of course is a little complicated and challenging at the moment as we do not yet have a completed building to carry out the Environmental Review!
Undeterred, our Eco-Team have assigned the nine sections of the review between us and will be meeting later in October to see what we know so far. Think of it as a big 100 piece Eco-jigsaw! This review is the important first step and will cover subjects such as energy, waste, water and even biodiversity and will allow us to then plan our actions.
Talking of waste, we are also hoping to get some colourful ‘inviting’ bins, if you can call a bin inviting, so that we can encourage as much waste to be recycled as possible. We are still looking for some more help in the Eco-Team so if you are interested please do get in touch witih the Community Centre team: deancourtcc[at]gmail.com
