Love Your Churchyard Event
"Caring for God’s Acre" was established in 2000 as a national charity, promoting the conservation of Churchyards. Often these sites have been set apart for centuries and as such offer much needed refuge for our native wildlife of all varieties – plants, mammals, invertebrates, reptiles.
At St. Peter's we have deliberately not done any mowing or strimming in the churchyard during May. This is so that our 'minibeasts' and wildlife have a chance to thrive and multiply.
During the week 5th - 13th June the churchyard will be open for visitors, especially children and families to explore and search for the wealth of wildlife that lives here.
