CHURCH GRASS CUTTING APPEAL.

It’s that time of the year when we can all look forward to the coming of Spring and the task of grass cutting of the Churchyard. Hannington PCC were very grateful to all who donated monies last year towards the cost of the mowing of the Churchyard and we are again asking you to help us by making a donation, which will greatly assist us to cover the ever-increasing cost. 

The Church is unable to fund this cost and we rely very much on your generosity to enable us to continue the grass cutting throughout the season.  The Churchyard is a focal point of the village and it’s appearance is appreciated by all who either live or visit Hannington.

Donations can be popped through the letterbox of Andrew Greatrex –Birchdale House, West Farm Close (behind the telephone box) - cheques should be made payable to Hannington PCC. Your help and support will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

 

CHURCHYARD GRASS

Some areas of the church grass will be left un mown this summer. Churchyards are a valuable wild life habitat because there is so little grass land left - England has lost 97% of its ancient meadow land. There are many meadow grasses and wild flowers in the Hannington church grass which can provide pollen and nectar for butterflies, bees and a wide range of other insects if the grass is left to grow naturally creating a meadow of colour, texture and interest. To encourage this rich and beautiful natural resource some areas of the church grass will be left unmown this summer. Walgrave church has a similar plan and this type of management is encouraged by the Northants Wildlife Trust and the Reverend Richard Coles, TV broadcaster and celebrity
