The Fife Eco-Fair in Cupar will be held this Saturday, 18th September, between 10am and 12 in the Old Parish Centre, Cupar. As many of you will know, we are in the process of establishing a new network in Fife. At an initial meeting a strong feeling was expressed that churches in the area simply wanted to know more about Eco-Congregation and how they could take action to care better for creation on a whole range of environmental issues. It was therefore decided to hold an event to help explain and involve churches and the wider community. A small group of volunteers from the original meeting nobly volunteered to organise the event and have been working hard ever since.
