Friday 11th August 2023

Community Clean from 4pm & Bat Walk from 7pm

Help us give this beautiful church a deep clean and get it looking its best again. We’ll provide all the equipment, protective clothing etc. We just need some elbow grease and enthusiasm! We’ll also be there to give lots advice on cleaning up after bats in churches.

Join local bat expert and professional ecologist Phil Parker for an introduction to St Mary’s bats. After a short talk we’ll use the latest technology, night vision cameras and bat detectors to watch the bats leave their roost at dusk.

PICNIC & REFRESHMENTS - Have a picnic in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s churchyard. Refreshments provided, bring your own picnic or something for everyone to share!


St Mary the Virgin is looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust, supported by local volunteers. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a volunteer and helping look after the church then come along on the day or contact Kate Roma - [email protected]
