Did you know? Father Alf and the other bee keepers can show you the hives. Watch here.
Bee-Friendly Gardens. Father Alf wrote this on this week's bulletin ~ Our girls are out in force at the moment, and, hopefully, if the good weather persists, we may have a more successful honey crop than last year’s bad summer allowed. You can help by making your garden bee-friendly eg grow lots of traditional cottage-garden flowers such as catmint, lavender, lupins, comfrey, geraniums and scabious. Grape hyacinth and lungwort are great for early spring, while asters, cosmos and helenium flower into autumn. Bees have different length tongues, so grow both deep flowers like foxgloves, and shallow ones like dyers chamomile. Don’t use pesticides.
Saints, Saints and more Saints.....lots of information about some saints, provided by some of our young parishioners. Thank you for accepting the challenge.
