    Churchyard Autumn Clear Up

    Saturday 5th October from10 am to midday.

    Once again people with strimmers, rakes, pruning tools, spades / shovels and wheelbarrows will be very welcome to come and tidy up grass, shrubs and around gravestones ready for the winter.

    There will be coffee, tea and biscuits and the satisfaction of seeing the churchyard look tidy.

    Many thanks to all those who have already put in a lot of work with hedge and grass cutting during the year.
