Church of England Diocese of York St. Hilda York

05. Churchyard and Memorial Garden Project

Great news! Thanks to City of York Council we have been granted a 'Forgotten Corners' award to renovate our churchyard and memorial garden.  We'll keep you updated on this section of the website.

Our project was launched on Sunday 4th November, when our Hull Road Ward Councillors,  Mr Michael Pavlovic, and Ms Hilary Shepherd joined us for the service, and afterwards planted a tree in memory of those from our community who were maimed or lost their lives in conflicts past and present.

Over the next few weeks, our uniformed groups will be planting spring bulbs around St Hilda's as a way of marking the Centenary.

Our Vicar, Revd Fran was interviewed on Radio York by Jonathan Cowap.  You can catch up on this interview here: at approximately 2 hours 10 minutes into the show.
