Bramerton Common

If you go down to the Common today you’ll notice a terrific difference after all the hard graft by parishioners who turned up for our working party on 2 November. Very many thanks to the strimmers – Ben, Julian, Keith and Will, to those on rakes – Jane, John and Rosalind, and to litter pickers Jane and Marcel. Although it rained for most of the morning they all stuck to the job! Thanks too for the refreshments – much appreciated.
