Disaster for St. Mary's Graveyard

Disaster struck St. Mary's small graveyard last week when a large tree was brought down, in the high winds, right across where our volunteers have been working so hard to clear the foliage and make the gravestones accessible.

The weight of the tree was luckily taken by the wrought iron fence and the stones were not actually damaged, but the fence is looking the worst for it.

This is a sad blow, as the volunteers, who had just planted bulbs along side the stones, and are hoping the damaged tree will soon be removed.
