June Volunteer Day 2013

Although this event on 15th June was not well advertised this did not stop our volunteers from turning out for what was a very productive session.

Efforts concentrated on improving a small but significant area just inside the chapel gate.

Everyone felt that, despite the inevitable rain, this had been a very rewarding experience which has helped to move the project forward.

We have, occasionally, come across unwelcome evidence of the drug abuse which was once taking place in the graveyard. The Tidy Towns team removed drug dens and a variety of drug users paraphernalia when they carried out the initial clear up of the site. Hopefully, the two needles which we found today, together with one from an earlier session, are simply a legacy from the past. Yet another reason to support this project!

An unwelcome discovery.

Many thanks to Steve, Sylvia, Sheila, Stephen, Simon, Frances, Andrew, David and Angela who turned out to give of their time and effort for such a good cause.
