Friends decided that it would be nice to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday by donating a lasting gift to St John’s church. We thought a flowering tree or a bench would be a fitting gift and when we put this to the PCC they decided a bench would be ideal. To fund this project we have approached various local organisations and the following were kind enough to assist:
Dr Lee & Partners Edwin Woodhouse &Co. I.G. Atkinson Vera Hardy Harron Homes Farsley Working Men's Club HomeBuyers
Yorkshire Tree Contractors taking five minutes after shredding off-cuts for us as part of our helping clear up the church yard.
Palmers Landscapes delivering their donation of top soil for banking up near the new bench in the churchyard.
Following our efforts to improve the church yard, we have been asked if we would donate a beehive (it will be looked after by Calverley Bee Keepers Association. CBA). It will, as well as providing a great boon to conservation, be of interest to local school parties that visit St Johns. CBA will give talks in the church hall for anyone who is interested in how things are going.
