This week (5-13 June), we are joining with other churches and councils in England and Wales in a week of 'Love Your Burial Ground' encouraged by the charity Caring for God’s Acre. The beautiful churchyard around St Mary with St Alban's is now the subject of a breathtaking new video captured using a drone along with a series of still images which are available to view below.

A series of exciting events including talks and churchyard teas are also running this week (please find out more here) and you can get involved in preserving the churchyard in the longer-term by 'adopting a grave'.

In addition, Teddington Parish's Sustainability Group encourages you to use your voice and to sign The Time Is Now petition.  By signing the petition we are uniting and telling politicians that #TheTimeIsNow to put a cleaner, greener, fairer future at the heart of plans to rebuild a strong economy.

Throughout the week there will be a quiz available for children as well as a nature trail, and most children from SMSP school will be visiting the churchyard class by class.
