1000 plant giveaway

May 21, 2024

On Saturday 25 May there are several separate events supporting local wildlife and we hope you will come along and take part.

1000 plant giveaway 11.30 to 3.30pm, ‘Front meadow’, Charles Court.

In partnership with the Heathfield Allotment Trust, 1000 wild flowers and herbs will be given away to beautify local gardens and to benefit our pollinating insects and provide nectar for butterflies. Our thanks to Carrie Darby for organising this event, to Kings Garden Centre for donating the compost, and to all the volunteers who have nurtured the plants from tiny seedlings.

Nature and wellbeing walks 1pm & 3pm, ‘Front meadow’, Charles Court.

These will be slow, friendly, gentle strolls through the village green and beyond. They will offer us the opportunity to notice, admire and appreciate our local flora and fauna.

Churchyard management and maintenance consultation, parish church 11.30am to 3.30pm

Lympstone Church is working with East Devon District Council to produce a plan for their management and maintenance of the closed churchyard which combines respect for and safe access to the graves with support for wildlife. This is an opportunity to see the proposals and to share your ideas, thoughts and suggestions.

Wildflower survey, churchyard 11.30am

Take part in a survey of the churchyard’s wild flowers and plants with parish councillor and horticulturist Susie Culhane.

Bug hunt & survey, churchyard 2.30pm

Hunt the bugs and insects living in the churchyard, with expert guidance for this first survey. Families welcome.

Eco-church, parish church 11.30am to 3.30pm

A chance to find out more about this important church initiative, with a display and an opportunity to ask questions.

The church will be open for teas and coffees between 11.30am and 3.30pm

Wild About Lympstone is a local group which encourages and supports small positive actions for wildlife. We recognise the importance and value of the natural environment for our local community, and for our individual health and wellbeing.
