Sorry if you turned up on Saturday to help in the churchyard and found nobody around. It was raining steadily at 8.30am and the forecast wasn’t too promising, so I decided to postpone for a week. Thanks to those who did turn up , and, I gather did some useful work!
Well, if you can make this Saturday (15th) between 9am and 1pm, we’d love to see you. Tools and refreshments provided.
We’ll concentrate on cutting the grass and raking off the cuttings and have another go at the clearing of ivy from the churchyard walls and weeding around the church walls.
Thanks to Graham Payne for burning the large pile of tree and other cuttings from our first effort a few weeks ago.
Dates for your diary, apart from the above:
20th October 2016- 7.30pm at the Vicarage Ames Court, Cawston- planning meeting for anyone interested in helping to work out the details of our next event and some initial discussion of next year’s programme.
15th December 2016- 6.30pm at St. Peter’s church- ‘Follow the Star’- stargazing in the churchyard, children’s activities, a talk about the bible and astronomy, family carol service, refreshments.
