Priory Garden Elves

“Peter’s Angels” were just two of the Priory Elves busy in the Parish Rectory garden.  The working party spent two days cutting, clipping, pruning, weeding and clearing the garden to make it more welcoming to a new Rector.

Although we are well into October the weather was warm and dry and the garden full of sunshine. Lots of hard work was done but it was enjoyable working in the company of others.

The new tidy tip at Thorn Turn became a familiar sight as over two and half cubic metres of “trimmings” were taken for recycling.

“O Lord, the maker of al thing,
We pray Thee nowe in this evening,
Us to defende, through Thy mercy,
From al deceite of our en’my.

Oh Father, through Thy blessed Son,
Grant us this our petition,
To whom the Holy Ghost alwaies
In heaven and yearth be laud and praise”

Words attributed to King Henry VIII

But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand…

All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above
Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord, for all his love”.
