Where’s winter gone? Not much snow - but many may be glad to see the the first signs of Spring arriving through the new growth and bulbs popping up and flowering which means………church gardening will start again at the end of March! The hedgerows will need trimming by then and the large evergreen shrubs need a serious haircut to keep them controllable. Some things may be better than others for certain people (like those who prefer to hedge and shrub cut and happy to climb ladders!) whilst others are happy to get on their hands and knees – just like all of us do at home with our own gardens.
Our major project for last year was to continue to re-instate the Jubilee garden which had to be dug up to lay the pipes for the wonderful new toilet in the Webber Hall. By now we have not only put the bench back – but have put up two more. It is great to see that they are used by so many of the parish who walk past take time to sit and enjoy the sound of the birds, rest and think whatever they want to. Looking forward to seeing you at some time! Under Roberts guidance the area around the memorial has gotten a complete makeover, looking very scrubbed up now!
Gardening Gods and Goddesses Needed!!
(Or even just willing volunteers with no gardening know how, but an ability to do tasks as delegated)
New gardening dates for your diary will be announced here when they become available:
Usually gardening takes place on Saturdays – from 9am – 11am.
are always lots of fun and the more who are able to come and help the sooner
the work gets done and the more fun we have.
If you cannot help on these dates but are willing to do jobs in your own
time please do ask Elaine what needs doing, or feel free to come and trim
hedges and do some weeding whenever you like.
