Cradley Churchyard Transformation
We are delighted to announce that the Malvern AONB is sponsoring our plans for the proposed summer wildflower hay meadow just to the north of the Church by providing Yellow Rattle seed. We plan to sow the Yellow Rattle in November/December when the ground has been cleared of fire-wood, and mown. Yellow Rattle weakens grasses and gives other wildflowers a chance to take hold.
Please pass on our appreciation for all the hard work done by our volunteers. We could not have achieved what we have without you! The firewood piles continue to grow smaller, please encourage anyone to take firewood, as much as they can whenever they can.
We apologise if any of the graves you tend are a bit roughed up following the felling of the Cyprus trees in September 2018. If you have a particular concern then please contact Tony or Anne.
H&S notice - the big logs are a two-man lift, make sure you understand how to handle them without hurting yourself.
We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to help in the churchyard and would appreciate any extra help at any time. Our regular gardening sessions take place throughout the autumn, winter and spring on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10.30am to 1pm, coffee and biscuits are provided.
Please stack firewood by the upper West boundary wall (keep the Church wall clear) and take home as much as you can.
Please pile the remaining sawdust, twigs and branches at the NW corner of the Churchyard by the gate, keeping the paths clear. Please ask if you would like to take some for your Guy-Fawkes bonfire!
We have now stopped using the NE corner, please don't carry anything down there!.
Tip of the month - split your wood now when it's green.
