Updates from ECO Sutton’s Newsletter!
We have the good news that Ecosutton has successfully applied for and received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, to carry on our work.
We have been awarded £8,700 towards our various projects, including our planned and upcoming air quality mapping programme for Sutton Coldfield, where we will be working in conjunction with local schools and other organisations to gather emissions data in the Royal town, to show air quality levels by street, postcode, ward area and school catchment zones.
Meanwhile our members have been busy participating in several Climate Change demos.
We are asking people to start planning how to plant Bee friendly planting in their gardens, and we will also be approaching Sutton Town Council to persuade them to do the same thing for next years Britain in Bloom contest, which reminds us to congratulate Sutton for receiving Gold this year.

Eco Sutton has recently developed a most interesting and well thought through set of plans for the development of Sutton.
“Sutton has many advantages that other Centres don’t have. A fantastic Park on its doorstep. Excellent and improving public transport. A high-speed rail network a few stops down the Cross Town Line (if all goes to plan). A compact Centre with housing close-by. Proximity to the second city as well as marvellous countryside. History and heritage.”
