Carols in the Churchyard 24th December - CANCELLED The Parochial Church Council has decided reluctatntly that the Carols in the Churchyard event planned for Christmas Eve must be cancelled. This is due to the problems of organising the event safely when over 100 adults and children are not able to enter the church building as this number would far exceed the Covid capacity and also present normal health & safety concerns.
