Eco Tip - No Mow May!

Join legions of gardeners and say “no” to the mow this May to help our bees, butterflies, wildlife and us!

Plantlife’s No Mow May campaign doesn’t ask you to do much. In fact, it asks you to not do anything at all… Just lock up your lawnmower on May 1st and let the wild flowers in your lawn bloom, providing a feast of nectar for our hungry pollinators. If you do not want to leave the whole lawn unmown, consider leaving a section. See the wildflowers grow and the bees and butterflies arrive! At the end of the month, join in with the nationwide “Every Flower Counts” survey. Not only will you receive your very own “nectar score” for your lawn, you’ll help Plantlife learn more about the health of the nations’ wild flowers. More details can be found at: No Mow May (plantlife.org.uk)

Last week auditions took place for the cast and chorus of Joseph! We are pleased to announce we have a full cast and can’t wait to get started. Rehearsals begin this week on the 18th May at Central @ 7:30pm for a ‘sing along’ for all the cast to get used to the songs and start to jell as a company. We look forward to welcoming you all!

Resources and material for worship will be on our Circuit website and Facebook page.
