Food for our little friends — Don’t forget to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peelings, tea leaves and coffee grounds for the parish worm farms. (No citrus, dairy or meat). You can still drop this off outside the office — during office hours. If you would like some worm castings for your garden you can leave a bucket or bag at the rectory with your details.
