Our Sun Rising Spring-Summer newsletter has just been published online. Those on our email mailing list will receive news of it digitally, and those on our list for postal copies will receive theirs over the next few days. It can be found online here : Spring-Summer Newsletter.
There are a few dates to put in your diary : Saturday 18 June is our Open Day, after which we will be holding a celebration of our tenth anniversary with mellow jazz, cream teas, a raffle, and a scavenger hunt for the children.
On Saturday 25 June, we have our bioblitz – a nature watch when we hope to record every single species we can find at the burial ground and nature reserve. Open to all, we hope there will be experts, amateurs, and families looking for a lovely day out. Do come along for a day exploring nature.
With the newsletter published in mid March each year, sending it out is another indicator for us that spring is fully with us. Although the wind can still be chilly, the burial ground is bright with daffodils, primroses and the first cowslips. Bumblebees are creeping out, and when the sun shines there are other little flies in the air, which is good news for the birds as they start to nest.
