There is now a newly formed gardening team of volunteers in Divine Mercy who have been hard at work in mixed weather conditions brightening up the Church grounds. There is always a welcome for everyone and plenty of laughter and jokes as well as cups of tea/coffee and biscuits and even sometimes iced doughnuts provided for the team. As with all the Church groups they are always looking for more people to help out so if you want to pitch in get in touch with the parish office and they will put you in touch or turn up at their next meeting.
Next meeting at the Church on Saturday 15th May at 11:00am – all welcome!
This morning we planted ( A SPECIAL ; HYDRANGEA, LILY & LAVENDER GARDEN ). This garden in in memory of deceased family members and friends, may they rest eternally in the peace of the Lord. As it is located outside the Church courtyard feel free to come and visit it any anytime.
The flowering hedge shown below arrived from Holland and we planted it this morning in a different location than was originally planned for it. We staked it with bamboo canes and a yellow traffic Cone to highlight that these 5 Hedges are planted here. Their new location is outside the doors of the church where the refuse bins are kept inside. More weeding in this area will have to take place especially. As it is the season that these hedges should now be Flowering, we will have to wait until next season to see the rewards. Before Winter arrives this area of ground will have to be covered in chip bark.
At the side Entrance for Daily Mass we plan 2 large Hydrangea’s Plus Two Sunflowers also staked with Bamboo Canes. These will catch the morning Sun every day but will also need to be watered more frequently.
