‘Green Fingers’ Club gets to work

25th April 2015

Last Saturday morning saw the first get together of members of the ‘Green Fingers’ Club in the churchyard when some tidying up of the border alongside the south aisle of the church was undertaken. Also, work began on clearing the area at the bottom of the western end of the churchyard in readiness for the planting of insect loving plants and wild flowers. The weather was not as kind as it could have been and perhaps this was the reason for the group members who turned up being an ‘exclusive few’. There has also been some work achieved by an enthusiastic lady earlier in the week. Also, the second bee hive is now occupied.

The Greenfingers team kicked off the season with another wet but productive and fun morning with very welcome help coming  from Cooperative Memorials, Efford sending a team to help – in particular cleaning the path down in Church Meadow. Thank you to everyone for such hard work.

Bulb Planting – Nov 8th 2014

Looking Forward to a Colourful Spring Display

Thanks to all who helped with the bulb planting in the churchyard despite the awful weather. There should be some impressive areas of colour in the spring as well as a good variety of blooms including fritillaries. The photos below show that fun was had along with the hard work!
