Enjoy the Nerine in flower or about to be, the Cyclamen and the late grasses. Grass needs mowing, but will depend on time and good conditions. Several new people have joined the Burials in Bloom scheme and made good starts.

Workshops at St Mary’s
I am planning a series of two-hour paid workshops, bookable on Eventbrite, costing £35. There will be 10 spaces for each workshop. While many of our offerings will be free over the next several years as part of our National Lottery-funded ‘Creative Church’ regeneration project and activities, these will not be part of my Lottery-funded sessions, but might be of interest to the congregation and local community. They will all take place in the churchyards and the St Mary’s Welcome Centre.
- Container and Window Box Planting: 16 October from 10.30am-12.30pm
- Low-Maintenance Gardening: 6 November from 10.30am-12.30pm
- Bulb Planting: 20 November from 10.30am-12.30pm
- Rose Pruning & Care: 8 January 2022 from 10.30am-12.30pm
St Mary’s offers weekly supervised volunteering in the churchyard at these times:
There’s no need to book; just turn up, preferably with your own gloves. Tools and expert instruction will be provided!
