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.

We're going to start with a 'Ground Force Team' morning on 20th October starting at 9.00am.  Refreshments available.  Come in old clothes, and bring gardening tools if you have them.

Update:  To launch our project, and to commemorate the Centenary of the ending of the Great War, at our 10.30am service on Sunday 4th November we are going to be joined by our Ward Councillors, Mr Michael Pavlovic, and Ms Hilary Shepherd.  After the service they will plant 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.
