There is a small team of people who look after the church grounds, and it has been mentioned on a number of occasions recently how nice the grounds are looking. Recently, new soil has been placed round the border of the grassed area and in due course more plants will appear. Some of the stones beside the church have also been supplemented, kindly donated by a member. Our  thanks are due to everyone involved with the church garden.
