At Horton Heath we’ve started an ‘eco church’ project where we’re encouraging wildlife with patches of wild flowers, bird feeders and nesting boxes along with plans to create a bug hotel and more!
To help create a wildlife pit stop at our church. We already have our residential bees, a variety of little birds visiting, scatty squirrels and evidence of badgers. One of which we suspect, with a little help from the squirrels took a particular liking to one of the feeders which is currently missing. We expect it will turn up sometime in the hedgerow or surrounding field.
It’s a lovely project and one that the whole church is actively behind, making the most of our beautiful setting nestled in the countryside. Many thanks to our Joan for instigating the initiative.
In a similar way the church is a pit stop for us each week, providing a place of rest and reflection, spiritual refuelling, as well as a community hub. All are welcome. We have our outdoor benches crafted from one of the tree trunks so you can sit and enjoy the wildlife and surroundings – let us know what wildlife you spot!
