Haveringland Groundforce Day #2

Our first Groundforce Day was a great success. 12 volunteers set to, clearing and raking the Churchyard at St. Peter’s, pruning trees, removing some thuggish weeds and saplings and making a start on some weeding.

Before winter sets in we need to finish off the basic tasks that will put the churchyard on course to be a managed conservation area as well as providing access to graves and a place to be peaceful and reflect.

So, 0n Saturday 8th October betwen 9am and 1pm, if you can spare some time to give us a hand it would be much appreciated. The main jobs are:

  • Mowing the churchyard and fully raking off the grass

  • Weeding around the church walls

  • Removing ivy from the churchyard walls

  • Tidying around graves

Tools and equipment will be supplied and refreshments will also be on hand. For more information please give me a call on 01603 754250 or email
