Our volunteers did over 130 hours during 2019 together with many hours at the May Plant Sale plus more hours on the annual Hall hedge trimming in August. They carried out some essential works including:-
The usual removal of yew berry seeds from the gutters together with cleaning out the road gullies and blocked rainwater hoppers, especially the tower roof outlets
Remove, clean and reset wood blocks within the church, a little job we keep for wet days!
Repointing of stonework
Repairs to lead flashing
Re-painting of downpipes
Repairs to damaged items
Treatment of Oak Doors
Completed many of the works called for in the 2016 Quinquennial inspection
Major work on St John's Hall & Annex - including repairs due to vandalism - and the external areas, particularly weeding and cleaning walls and paths
