Attached pictures are of a modest but very exciting subject: wood anemones (windflower). These humble plants usually occur in ancient woodland sites and the fact that these are growing in the St John churchyard means that they have been around for a very long time indeed. Wood anemones only propagate via their root system. They do not produce seed, which means they do not travel far. A very precious find indeed! Find out more about this spring flower by following the link below:

Shortly you will find at the back of our churches collection boxes for candlewax that is left over. Somebody is collecting wax to make into candles that are used at the warfront on Ukraine. Please collect any wax you have and bring to church. More details to follow soon or ask Helen Burt for more info.
