Grave Yard Clean Up
A generous-hearted resident has been paying for additional grass cutting around the memorial stones at the east end of Misterton Parish Church’s graveyard. The area has looked much better for the extra care and attention. If anyone would like to contribute to the grass-cutting costs, please speak to the Church Treasurer, Hazel Duffner (890877).
