The Annual General Meeting was held in The Reading Room, Wrington on Tuesday 26 April 2016.
Hon. Chair Pippa Marsh opened the meeting and thanked the residents of Wrington for their ongoing support and generosity, enabling All Saints' Churchyard to look so beautiful throughout the year. The combination of an occasional house-to-house collection, regular donors by standing order, and one-off gifts, enables the Friends to make grants available to All Saints' Church to contribute towards the upkeep of its Churchyard - for the benefit of the whole community.
Grass cutting and weeding of flower beds, completed regularly throughout the year, helps greatly to enhance the general appearance of the Churchyard. Once again 'the Friends' have contributed 2/3rds of the annual cost of this maintenance. 'The Friends' are also pleased to be able to pay for work carried out on decaying and fallen headstones. Most recently, we have paid
for urgent tree surgery to remove a dead tree and trim branches of another overhanging Station Road.
The Trustees would also like to thank the contractors who actually carry out the work and do such a great job in maintaining what must be one of the best kept churchyards in Somerset. Something all our donors and the whole village can be proud of.
Pippa Marsh was re-elected as Hon Chairman. Chris Brown was re-elected as Hon Treasurer. Jeremy Birkett was re-elected as Hon Secretary. Terry Flaherty, Pat Ledbury and Andrew Whiting were re-elected as Trustees.
