Church Tubs

It’s that time of year again ~ We will be planting up our tubs again soon. Donations to buy plants would be very much appreciated and can be popped through Angela Carr’s door in Victoria Street. Thanks again for your support.

 

The Green Corridor and Churchyard Rejuvenation

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our churchyard clean-up over the weekend at the beginning of April.  A really good start was made to clearing ivy, brambles, saplings, basal growth and fallen branches and we now have a very large pile of debris to make a bonfire.  Thanks also to the ladies who kept the volunteers fed and watered with tea and delicious homemade cakes!

Our next outing to continue the good work is on Sunday 22nd  May from 13:00 when we will be very grateful for volunteers to come along with suitable tools and equipment to tackle the overgrowth along the south wall.  Thanks again for your efforts to create a Green Corridor through the village. Contact Diana Muir 473455 for more information.

 

Christian Aid Week

A huge thank you to everyone who has returned their Christian Aid envelope. There is still plenty of time to post them back to one of the addresses on the envelope! Thanks again Rosemary and Wendy
