Incredible Edible Tubs

You may have seen a strange tub or two appearing in Upper Hale. There are actually three – one at the Bungalow, one near the War Memorial and on in the grounds of St Mark’s. They have been filled with compost so that anyone, you perhaps, can plant them with herbs, fruit, vegetables… anything edible!

Incredible Edible is a community project that increases our awareness of food and where it comes from and makes a step towards a more sustainable world where all of us can be fed without a negative impact on our world. It started in 2008 in Todmorden and is spreading across the country and indeed the world, bring communities together and having a great deal of fun doing it!

The Reverend Lesley Crawley said, “If you spot the tubs then please plant in them – you don’t need permission! But find a way of labelling what you have planted and indicating to people how to tell when it will be ready to eat. Happy planting!”

Anyway – back to the tubs – please plant in them – you don’t need permission! But find a way of labelling what you have planted and indicating to people how to tell when it will be ready to eat. Happy planting!

New Welcome Packs

Look out for the new welcome packs at the back of church! The PCC spent a great deal of time last year thinking about our welcome, and the packs are as a result of these discussions. The welcome packs include information about our services and activities, as well as hiring our halls and organising weddings, funerals and baptisms.

Welcome is everyone’s duty – not just the clergy or the churchwardens or the sidespeople… it is a role for everyone. Please look through the welcome packs – familiarise yourself with what is in them – find out about the activities of the church… and then if you see anyone new please offer them a pack so that they might be able to be a part of what is going on.

Also – let me know what is missing or inaccurate and I will sort it out!
