a natural area within our community, and we thank Robert Smith , who has recently
retired, for his many years of dedicated service in caring for it on behalf of the
We are now thinking about ways we might further develop the churchyard for wildlife,
and for our community to enjoy. The first step is to observe, and evaluate, what
is already there. Over the next twelve months or so, there may be some variations
to the usual pattern of mowing as we watch to see what grows where. As part of
this process of evaluation a drone survey has been done of the churchyard – thank
you to Matt and Dave for organising this.
Our young people are keen to get involved, and will be helping to survey various
aspects of the churchyard, and maybe developing new features.
Any developments will take place very gradually, and the churchyard will continue
to combine neatly mown areas with less closely mown areas.
Look out for signs appearing in the churchyard to tell you what we are doing, and
what we have discovered.
