Walking round the gravestones

Burial ground pathway
Because of the adverse weather during the winter months, the underfoot conditions in the village burial ground were unpleasant for those visiting. The Parish Council have undertaken to have a path constructed to Norfolk County Council standards at the time of the pathway construction along the B1077, subject to a contribution of £500 from the Church.
The Churchwardens invite donations towards the £500 in order to minimise its commitment as the Quinquennial Inspection is due this autumn and is expected to recommend urgent restoration to the stained glass windows at a possible cost in the region of £30,000.
Should members of the community wish to contribute towards the cost of this pathway, please forward any amounts to Sheila Freake, treasurer to All Saints' Church, at 36 Hargham Road, Old Buckenham. Cheques should be made payable to All Saints Church and, if you are a taxpayer, please authorise gift aid reclaim. If the contributions exceed the sum of £500, any surplus will be passed on to the Parish Council.
For further information please telephone 01953 860462.
