Friends of Holnest Church AGM 2018
Wednesday 28th February, 6.30pm
Village Hall, Stock Hill Lane, Glanvilles Wootton, Sherborne, DT9 5QF
Join us for our second AGM to learn what our charity has achieved over the course of the last year and what plans we have for the coming months.
Following the meeting, there will be a short break for refreshments before we welcome Imogen Davenport, Director of Conservation for the Dorset Wildlife Trust. Imogen will talk about the work of Dorset Wildlife Trust and in particular the Living Churchyards Project which has been running since 1996 to encourage parishes to find a space for wildlife in churchyards and cemeteries. These can be rich wildlife havens with hosts of orchids or ancient trees, but there does not have to be a rare species or a large area managed for wildlife to make a successful project. We want to encourage local communities to get involved in the management of their churchyards for the benefit of wildlife as well as the local congregation, visitors and the bereaved.
