A request to those attending graves

It has become noticeable lately that more and more people attending to graves in St. Helen's Churchyard and Sharnford Cemetery are using glass vases and jars to place flowers in. The problem is that these are getting broken either by the wind blowing them over, or hit by the mower (some are hidden in taller grass), causing a danger to people and wildlife.

Please refrain from using glass and stay safe.

Help needed in St. Helen's Churchyard

Are there any fit and able volunteers in the village who would like to assist in the upkeep of the Churchyard?

If two or three, or even more, helpers were available to mow, and tidy the areas the mowers cannot reach, it would only take two to three hours every couple of weeks. It is also good exercise!
