Wed 16th March 2011 - All Saints Church, Freshwater.

Well Spring had certainly sprung today during our visit to All Saints Church, Freshwater helping the Cemetery Warden Carol. The churchyard was bursting with beautiful daffodils, with great tits and robins singing merrily from all sides, especially when we got stuck into all the tasks - I think they were hoping we would unearth lots of goodies for them, certainly there were quite a few homeless woodlice! Lots of jobs for us - one important one being to clear out the gullies around the bottom of the church building, which had become very overgrown with weeds. Two large groups tackled the boundary walls of the churchyard -– both sides - clearing away the ivy on both the roadside edge and the side past the bier house right along to include the cemetery extension, and barrowing all the greenery over to the disposal area. Other tasks were to tidy up the rubbish tip, paint the large shed a nice shade of green, and clear away the trees from the outside of the wall near the road - Phew!

Many thanks to Carrie and Eddie for the pics this week.
