Parishioner Profiles (in Isolation) – Ian and Joan


Ian, who works in our churchyard maintenance team, writes:

Due to the current situation, the churchyard at St Nicholas’ will now be left to naturalise – good for nature, but not for access to graves.  With both and our volunteering at Nymans Gardens on hold, and with a spell of good weather, we have had no excuses for not getting our own garden ship-shape.

So the spring jobs that we have been doing include:

  • Strengthening the fence panels following the battering they received from Ciara, Dennis and Jorge
  • Dead-heading daffodils
  • General weeding and tidying of the borders and lawn
  • Digging the vegetable patch
  • Sowing flower and veg seeds in the hope that we have a summer to enjoy – but we will need both some rain as well as sunshine !
