The PCC of St Peter Offham and Hamsey have approved plans to allow the churchyard at Hamsey to be managed such that the main areas grow freely during the summer months and walkways are cut and maintained for access.
The area where there are cremation memorials and more recent graves will be lightly strimmed during the summer.
Later in the year the whole churchyard will be strimmed with the removal and disposal of cuttings.
This will keep the grassland nutrient poor and encourage diverse chalk flora and the insects that depend on them and improve the habitat for wildlife.
