The churchyard and graves in the old churchyard need a good tidy.  Saplings removed, boundary tidying.

All sorts really.

If you can join us even for short while that would be great.

Please bring whatever tools you think you might need, stout gardening gloves and a drink.

Thank you (in anticipation)
