Gardener - Adopt a Grave at St Marys Horsell

Would you like to join a team of around 35 wonderful volunteers and their “Adopted” graves in the sections of the churchyard near to the main path? Some adopted 3 graves others adopted a whole row. They trim their graves with shears and strimmers and weed between the awkward cracks and in many cases, planted bedding plants. The work is done whenever the “Adopter” feels they have the time.

Many comment on how peaceful it is working in the churchyard but also that it gives a huge sense of community spirit and the chance to have a chat with one of the many people who walk around the churchyard and who use the main path.

This year, there has been some heart warming feedback from people who can’t look after their family graves either because they live too far away or they are not in the best of health. They have thanked the church for tending their graves and said how much they appreciate this kindness.

If you would like to adopt a grave, you are most welcome and your help would be very much appreciated.
