If you are free to help, even for a short while with grass cutting, weeding, trimming and general snagging, we would appreciate your help. Please bring tools, gloves, viz jackets, male & female welcome. Meet in Church car park. Many hands make light work – thanks to all who helped last Thursday evening. “Beauty dies where Litter lies”.
