Please remove any Christmas ornaments (and other non-compliant artefacts) placed on graves no later than the 2 Feb. This is to ensure we are compliant with the churchyard regulations as posted on the noticeboards and found here https://www.chester.anglican.org/support-services/churches/churchyards/churchyard-regulations-2007 (specifically sections 14 & 15 subsection 5).
Any non-compliant artefacts still on graves post 2 Feb will be removed and disposed of.
Thank you in advance.
Please take your waste home. Do not use the black bin for green waste.
The Church Wardens
We are sure that everyone will be pleased with the results and that you will enjoy walking along the new smooth surface!
We would like to thank everyone so much for helping to fund this work, and to thank you all for your patience while the work has been undertaken.
St James' Church
We were thrilled to hear this morning at prayers that since we have begun rewilding the churchyard, golden (I think) chaffinch's have started to appear in a neighbour's garden. Rather than provide a picture of one from the internet, I am awaiting a live record from said garden!
I am reminded, with thanksgiving, of the work and words of Mike, Bettie, Jonathan and Archdeacon Ian on the issue of rewilding churchyards. If you are interested, check out the churchyard working party page on our website.
