Local children thank Adur & Worthing Councils for Worms and mud

Released: Tuesday, 18 April 2017

Local volunteer youth worker, Lin Lewis, of the West Durrington Phoenix Group recently contacted the Councils to thank them, and in particular Adur & Worthing Councils' Director for Customer Service and Director for Communities, for arranging for her youth group to have a bespoke wormery built for the children to observe the invertebrate animals up close and for it then to be used by the Empty Place Charity, run by Lin's son Mark, as an efficient food recycling system.

Lin continues:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you, firstly for the Recycling Together £100 shopping voucher presentation evening that we all enjoyed, especially the children, and another big thank to the Council's Waste & Recycling Service for arranging for Community Park Ranger, Anthony Read, to build us a wormery.”

“Anthony came to the club earlier this month and built a nice wormery with a window so the children can observe the worms in action, up close. He also encouraged the children help with the build too, which was fantastic. He was not fazed by our additional needs children and was such a cheerful man, advising us on lots of other things we could get the children involved in.”

“Also, my son Mark, who runs The Empty Plate Cafe in Worthing, was really pleased that there is going to be somewhere for the charity's veg waste to go, to then be turned into compost by the worms and ... help to reduce waste going to landfills.”

“Who would have thought so much, from just one conversation, could affect two local volunteer groups in Worthing!”
