Churchyard Working Party
The Churchyard Working Party are volunteers who meet once a month, usually on the third Friday, to maintain the churchyard around the Church and the Church Hall grounds
The Working Party on the 20th November cannot go ahead due to Lockdown restrictions but we still plan to hold one on the 18th December.
The next working parties will be on the 18th December at 10am. Please bring your own refreshments.
We have entered CPRE Devon's Best Churchyard competition for the last three years:
in 2018, we were 2nd;
in 2019, we won "Devon's Best Churchyard"; and
in 2020, we were "Highly recommended" which was what we expected having been so successful in the two previous years. We won these awards due to the hard work of all our volunteers.
Due to Covid-19 crisis we cannot meet as normal, but we are now successfully working together in socially distanced groups of 6!
If you would like to help, come up to the churchyard around 10.00 on a working party day and we will find you something to do and somewhere safe to do it!
Please bring your own tools and refreshments - we will stop work at 11.00 for socially distanced groups to enjoy their refreshments and a chat! Most people work on till 12.00 - 13.00, but you can do as much or as little as you like - every bit helps.
You are welcome to come and join us - please get in touch if you would like to know more.
Each month the ‘green gym’ activities may include: weeding, brushing paths, trimming back shrubs, sorting flowers, oasis and containers; cutting grass paths in the old Churchyard; cutting the hedges, trimming path edges; removing mole hills and disposing of any debris, where possible.
