The seeds planted in March to develop our wild flower meadow in Daphne’s Field (the graveyard extension) have suffered from the lack of rain, but a few new flowers have arrived both where we worked and in the larger long grass area (where we sowed seeds last year but not this year). The field now looks beautiful and is full of wildlife, including butterflies.
Our charity Soup lunch in Ovingdean Village Hall on Saturday 29th February was a great community event and raised a total of £1,225 (including Gift Aid) for this local homeless support charity. Thanks to Steve Brunto for his inspiring account of their work and Shirley Ross for organising the event ( pictured above with the Ven. Martin Lloyd Williams (left), Vicar of St Wulfran’s, and his wife Jacky (right).
