Volunteer Workday Sat 26 Oct at St.Mary's Church - please come!

St.Mary's Church, Ladywell
Anne from community gardening website Lewisham Gardens has arranged a community planting day on Sat 26 Oct at St Mary's Church, Ladywell, which is one of the most ancient buildings in the Borough and a major community hub.   This will be a one-off event to tidy up the main frontage which has become quite overgrown. There is also scope for some fresh planting.
Church members, parishioners, parents from St.Mary's School, LFUG members and others are expected to be taking part, so it should be a nice opportunity to do something useful, have some exercise and make friends. 15-20 people with trowels and fuelled by tea and cake could make a fantastic difference to this local treasure. There will also be tours of the Church and tower for volunteers!
Glendale have the contract to maintain the churchyard and will be planting £1,500 of shrubs in the main Ladywell churchyard this winter - so the area will be improving and this volunteer session will be the catalyst.
Please do come along, and do all you can to publicise the day.   The email contact is  Please email Anne or reply here if you're likely to come. I will try to find the start time and post it here once I have it.
