EXTRACTS FROM THE VILLAGE NEWSLETTER
JULY  2000

Church Graveyard

There are relatively few grave spaces left in the graveyard. The Church Wardens are in the process of clearing what available space there is, therefore it has become impractical to have an area set aside for grass cuttings, weeds and old funeral tributes to be dumped. Most of those who tend graves are responsible and remove any rubbish, so we are making a general plea to all those who tend graves to remove all rubbish. Thank you. It is intended to commence burials in the old church graveyard when the present one is full.

Bow Brickhill WI

The next meeting will be in the Pavilion on Thursday 20 July at 7.30 pm. Mrs Miller will be demonstrating making "New Sweets" and the competition is for "Artificial Fruit".
