Help needed at Barrowden Church with
We have had in place a maintenance programme with Elms Landscaping to cut the churchyard during the summer months. However, as the church has been closed as a result of the coronavirus, our income has been considerably reduced and as we need to conserve church funds we have found it necessary to cancel the contractor in the short term.
It is our intent to maintain the churchyard in good order, and we have in place a small team of volunteers who are cutting the grass with the church petrol mower in between maintenance cuts. However, our greatest requirement is for someone with a sit-on mower to assist in cutting the areas around the back of the church once a month, together with someone with a strimmer to trim around the gravestones. An additional two or three people to help spread the load of the current volunteers using the petrol mower would also be welcomed.
Please contact David Lovering, tel no. 747670, if you are able to offer any help as it would be greatly appreciated.
