Live Simply Wildflower Gardens - as part of our Live Simply parish commitment we are being invited to plant a wildflower patch in our gardens. The Parish will supply some seed - please see the leaflet at the back of church and sign up on the form at the back of the Church.

Look out for more live simply ideas and things we can do together as a parish family in the coming weeks and months
