EXTRACTS FROM THE
There are relatively few grave spaces left in the graveyard. The
Church Wardens are in the process of clearing what available space there
is, therefore it has become impractical to have an area set aside for
grass cuttings, weeds and old funeral tributes to be dumped. Most of
those who tend graves are responsible and remove any rubbish, so we are
making a general plea to all those who tend graves to remove all
rubbish. Thank you. It is intended to commence burials in the old church
graveyard when the present one is full.
