We are having a garden and grounds working party at 10am on Saturday 12 September and all are welcome.
We have an exciting project to start. Come and plant spring bulbs and plugs for a new wildflower meadow! This promises to refresh the front area of the church grounds as well as being a resource for pollinators. This planting is the first part of a rolling plan for garden and grounds for attaining a Silver Award as part of the A Rocha Ecochurch scheme. The aim is to manage our grounds to maximise wildlife.
But we are not just planting: there’s also lots of trimming, weeding and tidying to do at the front and in the garden.
We will need to be careful to observe social distancing. Wear a facemask if you wish. Bring hand sanitizer. We will take a register of attenders’ names and phone numbers for track and trace purposes.
You will need to bring your own tools and refreshments. Particularly useful will be gardening gloves, trowels, snips, secateurs and hoes.
Please let me know if you are coming so that we can allocate people to teams to get as much done as possible and avoid bunching people up. Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
