Hi, thanks Dougie for your kind words of encouragement and giving your time to upload photos of the work that we are doing. Just to give your readers some insight.....The graveyard is absolutely massive as Holy Trinity was the parish church for all of Ashton in Makerfield, the site has become very overgrown and unkempt, thus the reason for diggers, chippers and chainsaws, along with the general mowing and strimming, weve repaired and restored numerous amount of broken crosses and headstones, weve raised a lot of headstones that were laid flat due to health and safety reasons, so the need for post mix to keep the stones safe and strong. Were also involved in the war memorial site within the shurch grounds and have designed and had made a memorial stone for all the fallen which dispays the tri-servicemens badge, at the moment all still work in progress but almost complete. We also manage The Green and have wild flowers which all the children of the village are involved in, we manage another site at Simms which has an abundance of poppies, we also manage the flower beds throughout the village. Were currently working with the young people to make bee bombs obviously to encourage pollinators and for eduacational purposes, any small amount of work carried out in any place is an achievement, our team is from age 4 to 80 years of age and all abilites are welcome, were supporting the doctors surgery as our team is used for "social prescribing" please keep rocking up Dougie and having a chat, we have homemade cake and butties every Saturday along with a brew, or lemon water take whatever you fancy, a massive thanks from The Friends of Seneley Green......
