Wildlife in the churchyard

Thanks to a joint initiative by Wild about Wivenhoe (a loose collective of local people with an interest in enhancing wildlife in Wivenhoe), Wivenhoe Town Council (who are responsible for the maintenance of St Mary’s churchyard), and helped by the professional expertise of the Wivenhoe Watching Wildlife people, there is now a well thought out and ecologically sound maintenance plan for the churchyard

In discussions between Erwin, the churchwardens and the above bodies, a Management Plan for the churchyard was agreed and this has now been approved by the PCC.
The new regime ties in very well with the Fifth of the
C of E’s Five Marks of Mission: “To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth“.

Through a judicious mowing, planting and sowing scheme the churchyard will gradually be transformed into an area that both pleases human uses and senses, and provides a haven for wildlife.
Here is the link to the Management Plan with all the details of what will be done where.
