Cherishing Churchyards Week 2013

This year the Cherishing Churchyards Week is from Saturday 8th June to the Sunday 16th June 2013. It gives us time to reflect on what a churchyard means to us as individuals and how it can bring a community together.

A churchyard is a place we can show our love and respect for those that have passed on in many ways. One such way is to cherish the churchyard by making it a place of natural beauty.

Come along and join us on during our practical session on the 15th June between 9:30 and noon.

Along with our monthly tasks of mowing and raking, we hope to be checking the small mammal and invertebrate traps that will be set out by our coordinators, Ivan and Liz, the evening before.

As with all of our practical task sessions gloves and tools provided as, of course, are tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits. There's no cost, we just ask that you wear sensible clothes if you would like to help. Our location and address can be seen on the column to the right.

If you're not near St. Giles, but would like to take part you can check the Caring for God's Acre website for events near you.
If you'd like to take part, but need some ideas, click here. You can also register your event with Caring for God's Acre by filling out the form here.

In the session report for June, I hope to be writing all about the little mammals and invertebrates and plants that we've seen during this event. To have our posts sent directly, enter your email address in the box at the top right of our blog.
