Spring Bulbs in the Churchyard

Volunteers wanted to help weed and plant. The Kew Society has been working with us on a beautiful planting scheme in our churchyard. A group of us will be weeding and planting spring bulbs on Monday 2nd December 10.00 – 12.00 so, if you can help, please tell Bill Cottle billwcottle@btinternet.com and just bring your muscles, a spade, trowel and bulb planter. If you have a spare hour or so before then, please come along anytime and dig up weeds to make the planting day easier. Thank you.

Christian Aid Sponsored Walk

Chris Stephens and I are most grateful to all our sponsors for raising a total of £1,726 for our Richmond Riverside Walk at the end of September. This compares to last year’s total of £1,695. Thank you also to those who manned the hall at the end of the Walk on the day, and those providing food for hungry walkers! Many thanks, Isobel Moses.

Welcare Christmas Collection

Welcare is a SW London & Surrey charity with Christian foundations which has enjoyed generous support from our congregation. It is dedicated to one-to-one, practical and emotional support for local families with pre-teenage children. If you would like to help this Christmas, please buy plastic gift card/s from Sainsbury’s, Tesco or Asda. A larger amount on a single card is preferred to smaller amounts on several cards. Then pass your selection, in an envelope stating the value, to a sides-person, Chris or Simon Child, or to Marie, the Parish Administrator, by Monday 9th December. Thank you.

Spring bulbs in the churchyard

The Kew Society has been working with us and with Kew Gardens to provide a low maintenance yet high impact planting scheme in our churchyard. We hope to get funding from Richmond Council’s Parks and Gardens department which supports the plan but, until this is confirmed, the Kew Society are providing some limited funds now to get the project started. A group of us will be weeding and planting spring bulbs in the morning of Monday 2nd December from 10.00 onwards in those hard to mow areas in awkward spaces. It would be great to have some extra volunteers to help on the day. Just bring your muscles, a spade and a trowel. If you can help, please let Bill Cottle know on billwcottle@btinternet.com . In the meantime if you have a spare hour or so please come along anytime and remove some of our invasive weeds, especially that ugly prickly Aklanet which has a hideous nine inch root which needs removing. The more we get done in advance the easier the glorious planting will be. Thank you.
