CHURCH GARDEN – Clearance work has started on the ‘jungle’ at the front of the main hall. The area has been taken over by ivy and creeper plants which smother any other plants in their way. They are also creating damage to the wall onto the pavement which could ultimately need major repair. If you would like to join in with the clearance operation then please speak to Ricky Martin or Ann Baird who will greatly appreciate any assistance. Previous gardening experience is not required and tea/coffee will be provided (and biscuits). Thank you.
