In November 2018 the Good Shepherd Garden featured a poppy fall that was admired by many.  The poppies where hand knitted by members of the congregation and then sewn on to netting by other willing volunteers.  This was our way of marking the 100th annivesary of the end of tje first world war. 

In December 2019 we added some winter colour to our garden. We used odds and ends of wool to create some giant knitted scarves for our mature trees.  This was a fun project designed to bring a smile to our neighbours and passers-by during the slightly dreary winter weather. 

In following years we have seen pom-poms decorating the trees for Christmastide and an Easter flower cascade is planned for 2023.
