Churchyard Project

June 2021 Churchyard Project

Our recent visits to St Patrick’s Church also got a mention. The children thoroughly enjoyed studying and recording the flora and fauna they found around the church as part of an initiative from the charity ‘Caring for God’s Acre’ which encourages communities to reconnect with their local churchyards. We found a huge variety of plants with fantastic names like Maidenhair Spleenwort and Yellow Pimpernel! Our findings are being sent to the charity to be put on a national database.

St Patrick’s is an amazing place, go take a look!
