Shirley would like to say a big thank you to the 8 people (one from as far away as Countesthorpe) who turned up to help her at St Peter’s today.
Drastic cutting back and removal of the brambles on the left hand side of the churchyard is required to reveal the tree line on the boundary and an embankment of soil needs to be removed/flattened.
The youngest helper was 69 years old, so we all had to pace ourselves, knowing that the nearest defibrillator was at the pub!
But 2 hours of hard labour achieved an amazing amount of satisfaction with most of the area cleared.
But there is still much more to do and any help would be gratefully received.
We all said who needs to go to the gym when you can get a good ‘work out’ clearing the hedgerows and getting them back into order – and it’s free!
If you would like to help and/or you have access to any machinery that would make the task easier then please get in touch with Shirley the Churchwarden.
