Cherish Your Churchyard Week
June 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 11, 2017 @ 5:00 pmFree
Join us for a special week to celebrate our churchyard and burial ground and to raise awareness of the treasures they contain.
Churchyards are special places:
- They often contain a rich diversity of plant and animal life.
- They are important places for archaeology and history.
- They often have distinctive and veteran trees.
- The stonework and boundary walls provide a home for a mosaic of mosses, ferns and lichens.
- They provide a tranquil place for quiet reflection.
- They are a resource for inspiration and community learning.
Churchyards are often within walking distance of local communities and can provide a focus for community involvement.
