   Good weather for the cemetery tidy-up on 2nd April    12 April, 2016

In a welcome contrast to the dismal weather for the 'Clean for the Queen' event in March, the cemetery tidy-up last Saturday morning took place in bright sunshine. The cemetery is looking well tended and cared for, which is much appreciated by those who visit it. The daffodils, primroses and snowdrops have all looked particularly lovely this year, so thanks to everyone who has been involved in planting them in previous years. The new hedging, which was planted last autumn, is also thriving.

It was good to see new faces joining the usual crew, and the extra volunteers meant that substantial inroads could be made into the careful removal of vegetation from the church wall, as well as the work within the Church Street cemetery. Whilst work still needs to be done on the wall, it really has made a difference. So, a very big thank you to all those who took part.
