It’s a contradiction in terms but the weather was spring-like when we gathered for the big clean on 3rd October.
Some willing volunteers had come into church and done their bit the previous day so when a dozen more arrived on Saturday to dust, sweep and scrub, clean, polish and hoover both in church and in the churchyard, there was less to do and the lovely sandwich lunch, kindly provided by Alan and Chris and eaten in the porch, marked a satisfying end to a rewarding morning.
One photo shows some of the men as they polished off the last sandwiches. I’m not sure they believe George’s story about the one that got away…. And take a look at the ladies present: they don’t believe him either!
Thank you to everyone who took part and also to all who take their turn at cleaning St Mary’s every five weeks all year round. We have a church to be proud of.
