19/05/2023: Wild Clary Maintenance – The maintenance regime for the Wild Clary area has been suspended this year.  Following several years of the maintenance regime the wild clary needs to be cut regularly to stop it from spreading to other areas of the churchyard.  It is envisaged that approximately one year in four the maintenance regime of the Wild Clary will be suspended.

19/05/2023: Butterfly Bank at Potton Cemetery – A butterfly bank will create habitat for butterflies of open grassland swards.
