Our next Churchyard Event is on 4th Dec at St John's, when we will be holding a Christmas Wreath Making Workshop inside St John's Church with Christmas music, mince pies & coffee.

We will also have a Christmas stall selling Christmas Food Goodies & Christmas planted bulbs & flower arrangements!

Community Payback have finished the grass cutting and the old and ugly tank has been removed.

A huge thankyou! to all the children, Mums, Neighbours & Churchyard Volunteers who came along & helped out at our Bug Hotel 2 Event, yesterday at St Mary's.🥰

Special thanks goes to Churchyard Volunteers Sophie & Felicity who made the event happen!

A beautiful, natural looking bug hotel, was built from natural & otherwise waste materials🍂

I hope you can go check it out - its situated at the back of the churchyard next to Commercial Road.

The children were complete superstars & even wrote notes welcoming the bugs to their new home!!🕷🐜

We Scattered the Good Seed on the Land! - but did not plough!!😆
This time of year, I always think about going to Harvest Festival and my grandparents farm. - Not sure my grandfather would have been too impressed though by this small amount of seeding! LOL🤣

A few wildflower seeds were scattered either side of the main entrance to St Mary's today, hopefully they'll add some colour & cheer next

 Raking the Grass at St Mary's

More raking at St Mary's today. Will it ever end!?

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!
