In December last year a short section of retaining wall surrounding the Churchyard decided to collapse into the road. Fortunately no-one was injured but because the cause was 'fair wear and tear' rather than vehicle impact it seems unlikely the costs of repair will be borne by the Church insurers. We are obtaining a 'faculty' (permission to undertake repairs) from the Diocese and seeking quotes to effect repairs as soon as the weather improves.

A certain amount of arm-twisting was applied to the congregation at the Christmas Carol service but we're still likely to have a shortfall of £1,000 or so on the costs so if you have any bright ideas to reduce this further please contact the PCC.
