We are very sad to have lost the services of Keith Cook, who has cut the grass in the churchyard for many years. It’s mainly due to his sterling efforts that the churchyard’s appearance has looked so good over the last decade. A new contractor has been engaged for the coming year, commencing in the Spring and continuing through until Autumn.

Throughout 2018 a willing band of volunteers have turned up, whatever the weather, to help out with work parties. These usually consist of work other than grass cutting, e.g. litter picking, weeding, strimming, pruning, removing unwanted trees and cutting hedgerows.

We owe a big thank you to David Ruffles and Graham Hunt for all of their unstinting help, providing equipment and transport during work parties.

Please feel free to join in on one of our work parties. We have two or three a year, on a Saturday, from 10am – 1pm. Refreshments are provided and it’s a good way of meeting new and old friends as well as catching up on village news.

Our next work party will take place towards the end of the summer.  Details will be included in Bardwell Village News:  Thank you Barry Felton
