Churchyard Working Party

The schedule for Churchyard working party has changed. We now alternate each Saturday with All Saints which means we are working once a fortnight now. The next Churchyard Working party is on Saturday 9th July 2022. Hopefully we will have support from the unpaid work group this coming Saturday. The next dates for your diaries are:
23rd July 2022
6th August 2022
20th August 2022

The grass is growing, flowers are popping up all over Summer has really arrived. This means that we need to mow and strim to ensure we can keep the churchyard in good order. Care when mowing to preserve the biodiversity.
