Working party at the Cemetery

A big thank you to the volunteers who met at the Knutsford Road Churchyard on Saturday, 11th May to tidy the area around the memorials for the cremated remains.  Ken had even travelled from Perth, Australia to join us. The sun shone as much weeding and trimming ensued. After an hour and a half the graveyard was looking much improved.

The next working party will be on Saturday, 6th July at 9.30, so do put the date in your diary.  New volunteers are always welcome and no previous experience is required as we have a wide range of gardening talent available.

Thank you,

Jayne Weaver
