Spring is a great time for bird watching, because migratory birds who visit Britain in the winter will be preparing to leave, and later in the season all the summer migrants will be just arriving. Our native birds will be busy nesting and raising chicks too so there is always lots to see.

During the Summer, there are lots of different flowers blooming in our parks, gardens and green spaces. Lots of the plants which grow in the cemeteries are wildflowers, which are a really important source of food for insects like bees, butterflies and moths, who in return pollinate the flowers.

The cemeteries are beautiful in Autumn with crisp and crunchy fallen leaves everywhere, and all kinds of interesting fungi sprouting up overnight!

There are still lots of things to see in the cemeteries in winter, and it can be easier to spot the tracks and traces left behind by birds and animals visiting.

The Snowflake Trail is over now until Christmas 2023.
120 of you took a Snowflake home for your own tree and 40 people left a message for a loved one on our memory tree. Thank you for visiting and making this event so special
#JQChristmas #keyhillcemetery

The Snowflake Trail is back for a 3rd year in Key Hill Cemetery and the weather laid on some real snow for us too!

The trail is free and open to everyone from 18th December until 1st January. Wrap up warm and explore, hunting for wooden snowflakes which hang from some of the trees forming a trail around the cemetery. Add the name of your loved one to our memory tree using the stars and snowflakes provided. Choose a decorative snowflake from the trail to take home for your own tree.

Please take care while walking as paths may be slippery in snowy, icy oe wet conditions. Please visit during daylight hours only.

Share your photos of your snowflake on your tree at home and tag us!

Key Hill Cemetery too far to travel? There are also snowflake trails at Lodge Hill Cemetery (18th Dec- 24th Dec), Lodge Hill Cemetery (18th Dec- 24th Dec) and Sutton Coldfield Crematorium (19th Dec - 24th Dec).
