Churchyard team


 

Our churchyard does not maintain itself.  We have a dedicated group who can be found hard at work on a Saturday morning each month during the growing season.  We aim to manage the burial grounds in a way which keeps them accessible to visitors but is also friendly to wildlife.  There is always plenty of grass cutting and general maintenance to be done but our latest project is clearing and then keeping under control the area behind the church - brambles are an endless battle.  There is now a plan and index of most of the graves at St Michael’s to be found in the church porch - we hope to complete the plan in the next year as we clear the ivy and brambles along the East wall of the old churchyard.
