The first initiative was to establish an identity for A Greener Stebbing via a children’s art competition to develop a logo (above). The logo selected reflected the topics we want to address and we think it’ll become a “badge of honour” in the future. Our plan is to develop initiatives based on the community’s needs and build upon existing ones. 

There were 36 entries in total for the logo competition and the committee awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. The winner was Nell Stone (see below), second place was Mei Bucknell and third was Lan Bucknell. All the participants received a small “green gift” for their efforts. 

 

Greener Stebbing is a Parish Council initiative that has formed a Committee (including the Green Champion) to engage with the local community and to facilitate and encourage green measures in the Parish.  It is to create resilient ecosystems and environmental initiatives that help move Stebbing and Uttlesford towards the goal of net zero carbon status alongside protecting and enhancing our local biodiversity. This will be done through an Action Plan and developed in phases as the plan matures. The members of the committee are Sandi Merifield (Chair) and Loftus Buhagiar.
