Box moth

Derek writes “Last Monday we had the monthly working party in the Churchyard here at St. Margaret’s Church.

It was well attended with 11 of us including David Dale visiting his parents from Austin, Texas.
Our task was to cut down the boundary box hedge which has been killed by the Box Wood Moth caterpillar.

As you can see it generated a lot of rubbish, at least 12 bulk bags.Next time we will have a go at digging out the roots. We are now going to have a period of time to think whether we replant with something else or whether to leave it open. If you have strong opinions either way please let the church know.
