After the 10 am service at St Peter’s on Sunday 9th June, take your coffee and look around the grounds of St Peter’s.  Let’s see what species of plants and wildlife we can find and report as part of a church-supported Citizen Science project this week for Churches Count on Nature.  If you are taking part you can report your findings to Barbara Doye or Simon Best on the day or download the iNaturalist app from your preferred app store and report direct.
