VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: All Saints Old Heathfield Churchyard Working Party, Saturday October 17, 10am to 1pm. The churchyard is divided into areas by paths and so makes the maintenance easily divided up between various regimes and various volunteers. This spring an amazing amount of work was done by our contractor to clear away the brambles and long grass so the autumn tidy up will be much easier than previous years. However, this year it is more important as we do not want to lose the areas back to long grass and undo all the good and hard work done earlier in the year. Because the graves are so close together they need to be strimmed and the grass raked up and barrowed to various piles around the edge of the churchyard. That’s all there is to it. You don’t need to stay for all three hours, we will be grateful for anytime you can spare. Refreshments will be available so just bring yourself and, if you have them, strimmers, rakes and wheelbarrows. If not, these will be supplied. Please wear suitable clothing, shoes and gloves. Let’s hope for a fine autumn day. (Penny Kift).
