Annual Churchyard Clean-up will be held tomorrow starting at 5.30 pm. If you are able to spare an hour or two it would be really appreciated as the more helpers there are, the easier is the task. Please bring garden rakes and wheel barrows if you have them. Once the clean-up has been done the mowers can start their summer grass cutting which makes the churchyard look so much neater. Again if anyone can spare an hour or so on Monday evenings through the summer to help Chris and his team with this work, it would again be very much appreciated.


Easter Lilies If anyone would like to contribute to Easter Lilies in memory of a loved one please give your donation to Joan Moss.
