Churchyard Maintenance.
We are very grateful to Clive Ffitch and his band of helpers for their excellent voluntary work in keeping the churchyard looking so immaculate all year round. If you would like to help them please contact one of the Churchwardens or Clive himself.
You may have noticed that there is a donation box in the Churchyard. Money placed there by grateful parishioners and those tending the graves of their loved ones,
goes directly to the purchase of petrol and spares for the grass-cutting equipment which would otherwise have to be paid for from other Church Funds.
