Volunteers have banded together to secure funding and help for the ongoing maintenance of their churchyard.

The maintenance of the graveyard at St Helen’s Church, Waddington, fell behind when the groundsman retired.

Villagers came together with shears, mowers and plenty of elbow grease for an initial clean-up effort and have since formed the Cutting it Fine Committee, who are raising funds for the continued upkeep after the financial burden on the church increased on joining a new diocese.

Donations can be given to Adele at Waddington Post Office and all offers of help will be gratefully received.
