A number of complaints have been made to the Parish Council, the Church, and Parochial Church Council about the poor state of the grass in the churchyard.
We thought it would be helpful to issue a joint statement from Mike Banyard on behalf of the Church and Nick Parsons of behalf of the Parish Council on future arrangements for grass cutting. Whilst we are very keen to keep our churchyard looking beautiful, we also have to consider affordability. Church funding is tight and consequently the Parish Council has made a significant contribution to the annual cost of grass cutting over a number of years. Currently the cutting schedule is being reviewed and consideration is being given to increase the number of cuts, especially during the high growth months.
The Parish Council will continue supporting the Church on this matter by making an annual contribution but the actual decision on the grass cutting schedule and contract resides with the Church.
The Church will continue to maintain the Churchyard with Parish Council support but we may in the future also have to ask the village for volunteers to help keep it looking neat and tidy.
If you are interested in volunteering or if you have any comments, please contact Mike Banyard directly.
On Saturday 13th August the Tharp Arms Festival will take place. Beers from several local breweries will be on tap and George Dumphreys will be organising an Open-Mic musical extravaganza until late in the evening. Those wishing to participate in the open-mic can contact George on 07741 300716, it is open to all ages and abilities. To add to the fun there will also be a bouncy castle and a BBQ.
We look forward to seeing you all, Bev & Rick
