Churchyard Conservation Group (PIOCC)

St Mary’s Parish Church – PIOCC Conservation Group

This month the Working Parties will be on Saturday 5th November at 10.00am and Thursday 24th November at 2.00pm – meet by the PIOCC noticeboard at the entrance to the Conservation Area. We will continue our seasonal conservation work, including woodland management. We look forward to welcoming our regular volunteers and also new participants. All are welcome.

Churchyard Conservation is a community project, not just for churchgoers, so please come along if you would like to be involved. Just turn up in gardening clothes and bring gloves. The tools are provided. Our Saturday morning sessions last about 3 hours (with a coffee break and chance to relax) and our Thursday afternoons about 2 hours.

Thank you to everyone who attended our evening meeting last month.

The redwings arrived in October. They love yew berries. Look for these small thrushes with red underwings (hence their name) in the tops of the trees. As the berries in the churchyard ripen and turn wonderful colours. How many different types can you find? Why not come and see? Or perhaps just enjoy a peaceful moment or on the WI seat. The Conservation Area is a community space for everyone.
