Wildlife Spotting at the Cemetery
St John's Church
Come and join us for some Wildlife Spotting at the Cemetery (churchyard extension), where St John’s Eco Church group are holding two open afternoons on Sundays 6th & 13th June, from 2pm to 5pm.
This is part of “Churches Count on Nature”, a national initiative organised by Caring for God’s Acre and the Church of England, to discover and record the wide variety of wildlife in our churchyards. Churchyards and other burial grounds are known to be very important resources for biodiversity across the country.
We hope you will come along and discover for yourself some of that variety – a chance to enjoy and explore what’s on our doorstep and you don’t have to be an expert! There will be people and resources to help with identification, and suggestions for family friendly activities, too.
Any species that are recorded will be submitted to Caring for God’s Acre and may then contribute to the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Atlas.
We could do with a few more people to help – both as stewards and as people with any knowledge which could help identify flora or fauna. If you could offer to help for any part of either afternoon, do please contact Revd Christine Axford on 01454 321161 or by email below – we’d love to hear from you!
