The idea for the scheme arose out two concerns: 1) that it was time to reduce the burden of keeping the entire churchyard regularly mown and strimmed which for some years had rested on only two volunteers, and 2) that it would be desirable to join the many churches and country gardens throughout the country in which areas of naturally occurring plants are being conserved both for their own sake and to encourage pollinating insects and other wildlife.
At the moment there is a vacancy for a manager of the scheme so that responsibility rests entirely with the Rector. When the idea for the scheme was first proposed, a number of people in the village expressed their interest and support and it was hoped that a Langham Churchyard Support Group might be formed. So far, there is no sign of that happening, though I have written an article which I hope may generate some interest. It is possible that at least some of those who have expressed concern about the state of the churchyard may be willing to help form a group.
