Derek writes: I was very excited earlier this week when I noticed a common spotted Orchid in the Churchyard.
This is the first one I have seen in 30 years at St. Margaret’s.
It has arrived after 10 years of encouraging wild flowers and managing them accordingly.
Wild flowers are an emotive subject, ranging from folk saying they are untidy to devotees getting easily excited by the look and nature it is supporting.
Do take 10 minutes to enjoy their beauty in the Churchyard & bank this week.
