Carlton Le  Moorland  Churchyard

After a  very  successful meeting with Liz Naeem, churchwarden at  Carlton  Scroop, and  several residents of  Carlton Le  Moorland, a plan was drawn up  to present to the  P.C.C.

Liz has spent  25 years planting wild  flowers and shrubs in the  Churchyard at  Carlton Scroop. A  visit there in spring and  early summer is  thoroughly recommended.

Withamside Parochial Church Council have  supported the proposal to try and plant more wild  flowers and  shrubs in St  Mary’s Churchyard. We will be planting appropriate  native species that will flower at  various points in the  year.

This will obviously take many years and  will be a  gradual and measured approach in small areas. We are seeking the help and  support of  other conservation projects. The  churchyard will continue to be maintained in a manner that  ensures it remains a place of peace and  natural  beauty, both put of respect for those who lie at  rest in it and for the  enjoyment of those who  visit it. The management of the  churchyard will continue to recognise its  importance as a  sanctuary for  wild life: plants, birds and  insects.

We want to involve as many people as  possible, both  young and old. We will put up  explanatory notes and  keep people informed of our  progress and  would  welcome offers of help in the  new year.
