Aughavas Church Yard

Work commenced during the week on preparing the large car park for resurfacing. It is hoped that the work can be completed during the next two weeks. We ask that all those who come to the church during these weeks should exercise special care and should respect any restrictions that may arise. The last surfacing of the car park took place in 1979, so we feel it is a good time to make this improvement.
