Friends of St. John's Churchyard
St. John's Churchyard
We are a small group of volunteers working with the Churchwardens of St John's and St Mary's. We meet regularly in the churchyard with the aim of managing and developing the churchyard to benefit its wildlife.
We would welcome more volunteers and you don’t have to be a churchgoer to join in. If you would like to take part in one of our practical “hands on” Work Sessions, even for ½ hour or so, you would be very welcome. We always make time for tea and cake too!
The dates of our Work Sessions are shown below. If you would like to join, please just come along, we meet up at the main church door:
Sept: Weds 8th 2-4pm
Oct: Sat 9th 10am-12pm
Nov: Weds 3rd 2-4pm
Dec: Sat 4th 10am-12pm
Living Churchyard Project boards have been put in the Church to inform & educate everyone about a Living Churchyard, explain our Living Churchyard Project, Objectives & Plans for the future, along with the Educational Board on Bug Hotels & the Importance of Insects to the World's Eco-system.

Many thanks to Community Payback for doing the prep work for us!
Planting will take place at our next Working Party on 8th Sept, 2pm - anyone wishing to help out, or just wanting to see what's happening, please come along! Everyone welcome!!
Ideally we could do with a few more scented shrubs. If anyone is able to donate, or has a scented shrub in their garden that they no longer want, please message me. We'd be very grateful!
Looking forward to posting photos of planted up border next month!
