On 7th May the trustees of Friends of Wrington Churchyard welcomed members of the public to its Annual General Meeting. The work of this small nondenominational charity was outlined and plans for how it will seek to provide support over the coming year were shared.
In the past year grants have been made to cover 2/3 the cost of cutting the grass in the Churchyard, the full cost of the regular tree survey and some subsequent remedial work; also further work on the Lych Gate and the rebuilding of part of the west boundary wall which had fractured. The trustees remain proud of the charity’s ability to continue to provide grants for work that enhances the appearance of All Saints' Churchyard for the benefit of the whole community. Such grants would not be possible without the generosity of people who give money to the charity on an ad hoc and regular basis.
Our core support towards grass-cutting will continue during the next year together with grants to address issues identified in the tree survey and on-going headstone and other Churchyard maintenance.
Pippa Marsh was re-elected as Hon Chair, Chris Brown as Hon Treasurer, Jeremy Birkett as Hon Secretary. Pat Ledbury and Andrew Whiting were re-elected as trustees. Ali Ledbury was welcomed as a new trustee.
If you like what you see outside All Saints' Church and would like to make either a one-off or a regular donation to enable us to maintain our on-going support please contact our Hon Treasurer, Chris Brown on 01934 862067.
Jeremy Birkett, Hon Secretary
