Wanted – volunteers for the graveyard working party!
Ian Samuel, who has coordinated the volunteer working party who care for St Mary’s graveyard and has, himself, regularly taken part in the care of the graveyard, has expressed a desire to step back a bit.  We are enormously grateful for all Ian’s hard work over a number of years.  We also sadly lost Alan Gautry last year, another member of the team.  So we should be grateful for more volunteers for the working party, and ultimately for someone to take on Ian’s role of coordinating the group’s activities.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to get involved in caring for the graveyard, please speak to Harriet or John Dean (Church Wardens) or to Ian himself, or any of the church yard volunteer party.
Many thanks.
