Churchyard leaf clearance called off for safety reasons

As most will already have heard, this morning’s leaf clearance will not go ahead, owing to the high winds and safety concerns.

Thank you if you intended to help. There will no doubt be another opportunity when the winds have abated from tomorrow.
