BUT all of this takes a great deal of upkeep.
The people who have given so many years to keeping the place under control are now few and getting a little older. New, younger help is needed.
We have a contractor who caries out grounds maintenance during the Summer. We need a team of volunteers who are periodically prepared to cut the ‘wedding’ lawn and maintain the churchyards as they will suddenly ‘run wild’ during the growing period.
People who tend the churchyard do need to strim with care to safe guard the flora and fauna that is enjoyed by walkers and visitors regardless of their religious leanings. We also need people to come along on special clearance days when a group work together to clear the tougher bits. At the moment many of the trees are being pruned and tended in order that they will continue to grow and remain healthy.
Many local people have already benefited from the free logs which will continue for a while yet.
If you can give a few hours here and there we will be very grateful. Contact churchwarden Philippa Rooke, who will show you the how and where. If you cannot give a little time on a regular basis then how about finding out when the ‘clearance’ morning will be and come along then.
Please email: email@example.com
Thank you very much in advance.

CAN YOU HELP?
Many people walk through the churchyard at St Martin’s and many take time to sit a while, it is a lovely place. We have many wild flowers, in the Spring there is a carpet of snowdrops and later there will be Ladies Smock and cowslips amongst many other things. There is too a lot of wild life, so always something to see or look for and many benches to rest a while.
