Ravage productions-2 (3)Built in Gothic style, York Minster points to heaven, but is also rooted in the earth – as shown by scooping the Silver Award in our Eco Church scheme.

Our Engagement Director Rich Bee (pictured centre) presented the honour to Dean of York Minster Very Rev Dr Vivienne Faull in July. The ceremony took place at a service in the presence of the Archbishop of York, Most Rev Dr John Sentamu and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev Justin Welby.

‘The improvement in position to the Silver Award came not from a short burst of action,’ said Dr Faull, ‘but from recognising the many actions we’ve been taking and continue to take with regard to our sustainability and the impact we have on our planet.’
