Churchyard Clearance and Maintenance – having made a good start to clearing the churchyard last year, including working on tidying some of the graves and gravestones, we are keen to continue this work and hope you’ll come along and join in again! We will plan to meet on every second Saturday through the year, continuing work in and around the churchyard. As well as continuing with clearing nettles, some ivy, saplings etc, plans include clearing the St Peter’s Path side of church as this has not yet been touched, possibly planting a Yew bush as a barrier, just inside the surrounding fence, cleaning and repainting the rails at the front of church. Below are the dates for 2014 – usually from 10.30 am.
10th May 14th June 12th July
9th August 13th September 11th October
No equipment is needed; just turn up! If you want more information on our “Adopt a Grave” scheme, or advice about how to clean gravestones, please contact the parish office on 020 8509 1811
Bee 17 – sometime soon we will be getting two beehives in our churchyard! These will be looked after and maintained by professional beekeepers from Bee 17. Watch this space for progress reports – or give the parish office a buzz to learn the latest!
Following the success of the E17 Art Trail we would like to know if there are any budding artists out there who would be keen to display their work at Peterhouse Centre, for a month. If this is something that calls to you, please contact Sarah in the Parish office on 020 8509 1811 or email
