Parish Life - Annual Report

Another successful year has been completed, our 15th.  Ten work sessions have been carried out and the interest and enthusiasm continues.  It is amazing how much satisfaction can be gained from managing such a small part of the earths surface.  The amount of changes that take place with the seasons and what really goes on in the natural world, to the inquiring mind, provides infinite rewards.  Although we have people come and help on a casual basis, there is a nucleus of regular helpers.  It is due to the dedication and helpful willing nature of these people that the project still remains a success.  There is a lot of hard work involved in the management, so this help is greatly appreciated.  Even though we still receive our Bishops Award for continued good management and are supported by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and other bodies, this is a remote slap on the back.  The hands on work is done by the volunteers who turn up in all winds and weather, so thank you one and all.

To raise the seemingly dour, it has been a brilliant summer.  For those who have taken the trouble to wander around the Churchyard at St. Giles there are many species to enjoy.  From the early beds of Snowdrops, Primroses and Cowslips to the meadowland butterflies.  It has been a year to savour.

We wish all our helpers and supporters and Peaceful Christmastime.  We look forward to seeing you in 2014.
