Ripples is the group for our pre-school children in Sunday Club at St Peter’s. It is really important that there is something for them to enjoy each week.
HELP PLEASE! -  With only one leader we are down to one session a month.

Would you commit to leading one session a month (less if more volunteer!) to help our youngest learn about God? Please talk to Helen Hodgson at St. Peter's if you would like to explore this. Thank you.

speaking of green...
It is now just over a year since the Community Garden Project started in St Peter’s Churchyard. The idea is to care for the land both for wildlife and people. We have installed bird boxes, a bird feeding station, piles of rocks and twigs, a bug hotel and allowed wild flowers to grow for wildlife.

We have three raised beds growing fruit, vegetables and herbs for anyone to pick. A small group of us meet on a Wednesday afternoon between 13.00-15.00.

During this time we garden, drink tea, eat homemade biscuits and enjoy being outdoors. We would love more people to join us but don’t feel you have to commit to every week just turn up when you can and help the project move forward. If you look closely at the photo of some of us weeding a raised bed you can see a  blackbird who likes to join in.

For more information please contact Anne Clark 07968 443132.
