The new churchyard extension has now been completed but how do you keep the grass under control? Well after putting their thinking caps the PCC hit on a very environmentally friendly solution . A group of very friendly sheep were employed to tidy up the new area of the churchyard and they have done a very good job as well as being a welcome addition to the church grounds.Thank you to the Fish family for lending these adorable lawn mowers to solve this tricky problem!
