We had a successful day at Sunday’s Heart and Soul Event in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh. This is an annual event run by the Church of Scotland to mark General Assembly week. Many eco-congregations were present, with Skene Parish Church having their ownstand showing their own environmental work and encouraging others to get involved.
The Eco-Congregation Scotland stand had an eco-driving simulator from the Energy Saving Trust to stimulate discussion about how we travel to church and how we use our cars generally. The simulator allowed people to test their own driving and learn some techniques to drive more economically.
Although the weather was wet at the start of theday it improved, and overall we had more enquiries than any of the previous years we have attended.
