Churchyard Project - September 2016

Regular monthly working sessions have continued and after what seems a long wait wildflowers have started to appear. Yellow Rattle seeds will be sown in September and a variety of plugs planted. The photo below shows the sign, kindly donated, to be installed at the top end of the Churchyard. A strimmer has also been donated to add to our inventory of tools.


Thanks to the expertise of entomologist Denise Gibbons in creating the appropriate habitat a variety of butterflies and moths are now to be seen daily. To enable everyone to experience this, a moth survey evening is planned for Friday 16 September from 7.30 pm at the top end of the Churchyard. Everyone is invited to stop by with dusk being the best time to do this. A simple device will be set up to attract the moths and Denise will be on hand to identity the various types of moth. Please put this in your diaries.
