Churchyard clean up team take a break

Have your say

THEY are enjoying a well-earned cuppa - after responding to a call from Voluntary Action Barnsley asking community groups to nominate projects that needed help.

Helpers descended on St Peter’s Church, Hoyland, after members of the congregation nominated their churchyard and path as a project that needed to be cleared.

Staff from Voluntary Action Barnsley, volunteers from the local area, and Father Richard Parker, from the church, all got together to help.

Martin Sugden, of VA Barnsley, who helped to coordinate the event, said: “It’s great to get involved in local projects like this and to see members of the community working together.”
