Newsletter: Issue 49, February 2022

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2022!

The sky is blue, the birds are singing and we are all hoping for a more normal year to come.


However, before, we look to what’s coming up over the next few months, we want say thank you to the volunteer gardeners who continue to maintain and keep the St Peter’s churchyard looking so great. It is due to their work that the churchyard always looks tidy and well maintained, and that throughout the year there is a changing palate of colour and life in the borders around the church!


In other news, the CCT has recently completed their regular six-monthly check of the building, replacing some tiles and clearing the gutters and the trench around the building.


The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee This year marks the Queen’s 70th year on the throne and we’ll be marking this with a Summer Tea Party on the 5th June and the planting of a new tree. In conjunction with the gardeners and with advice from a landscape architect, we have chosen a native rowan, which will be planted this Spring.
