Spooky goings on at the St Ives Green House

 

More than fifty children and their parents enjoyed the Halloween Activity Day at the St Ives Green House on Wednesday 31 October.  Superman, Batman and wicked witches joined in the fun to help us combat litter and reduce our environmental footprint.

The children got creative making Halloween decorations out of waste.  They made bats from eggs boxes, mummies from toilet rolls and hedgehog collages using the fallen Autumn leaves.  Not forgetting our wildlife, the children mixed up fat cakes for birds.

There was a bug hunt around the wildlife garden and an eco trail in the house which led families to discover all the great features of the Green House and give the adults a chance to pick up ideas on how they can save money and energy within their home.

Our superheroes donned a high viz vest and grabbed a litter picker to help us sort all of our waste into the right bins for recycling.

After taking part in all the activities visitors let us know what they wanted to do to help the environment and pledged their commitment on the Green House Eco Tree.  Pledges included, turning taps off when brushing teeth, switching lights off and not wasting food.
