From the Wardens:
A huge thank-you to everyone who volunteered and turned-up for the annual Spring Churchyard Tidy-Up, on Saturday 15th April, 2023. After a week of grim weather with lots of rain, we were fortunate that the day dawned with a brilliant Blue sky; indeed, it became so warm that we even started peeling-off coats and scarves!
It’s only when you stand at one end of the churchyard with a trowel or fork in hand, and look towards the other end that you realise how large this much-loved churchyard is; whilst we are grateful for the help we have with cutting the grass and strimming, it’s the trimming and cutting back of shrubs, weeding of flower beds and Garden of Remembrance, that need regular care.
As promised, tea, coffee and home-made cake were provided and very much enjoyed by us all! Thank you everyone!
