Chester Cathedral embraces sustainability and ethical business practices and is keen to work with local produce, local people and local organisations while being mindful of the impact upon the environment.
In recent years we have begun to put efforts toward reducing our carbon footprint and supporting our local economies by sourcing locally made products including chutneys, jams, chocolates, jewellery, textiles and Chester Cathedral honey. A colony of bees were introduced onto the Chester Cathedral estate a few years ago and have flourished ever since. The honey is harvested sympathetically to the bees and sold in our Gift Shop.
The carbon footprint of our honey is the same as the footprint of our honey bees!
The Cathedral Gift Shop now has its very own Facebook Page. Like us to keep up-to-date on our exciting new arrivals or items of special interest.
