St Michael’s has begun the process of becoming an eco-Church. We have made a careful study of the various criteria that we need to fulfill and are gradually reaching our targets. We now buy our electricity from a supplier of renewable energy. And we have begun managing our churchyard in a more environment-friendly way. The most visible achievement is a small wild flower meadow near the war memorial. In the summer of 2019, a glorious show of poppies not only attracted numerous insects, it was also a fitting tribute to the fallen of both world wars. Other flowers are beginning to open, and the visiting bees and other insects will hopefully discover the bug-hotel which is hiding in the centre of the meadow.
