Eco Walks

What and Why?

The idea for eco-walks came in response to a presentation by Andy Lester of A Rocha at the Hertford and Ware Deanery Synod meeting in February 2019.

We hold walks after the All the Family Service in each of the four seasons - January (Winter), April (Spring), July (Summer), and October (Autumn). Whilst these are Family-Friendly they are suitable for everyone. You are invited to join us on a short walk through our six acre churchyard.

The aim is to look closely at our environment, discovering the plants and trees, looking for insects and other creatures, watching for birds and focusing on how everything in nature is interconnected and needs to be safeguarded.

Who can come?

Everyone is welcome - the walk will begin around 11:10, after coffee and a chance to enjoy the craft activity. Families who are not in church for the service, are welcome to join us for the walk.

When?

Our next meeting in 2020 will be after the Family Service on Sunday, 5th April.

I have had a range of thrushes here recently, eating the yew berries: fieldfare, redwing, songthrush and mistlethrush, but in small numbers, nothing like the flocks I remember forty years ago.

Don’t forget I have peanuts and black sunflower seed for the birds on the Produce Stall after Service, £1.00 a bag.

Love, Fiona
