All Saints - Volunteers

ALL SAINTS CHURCH - THORNEY HILL

During the morning of 25th January 1991 a great storm developed with winds exceeding 100 m.p.h. And by early afternoon some 145 trees, many of them over 100 years old, had been blown down in the churchyard making criss-cross piles of trunks over fourteen feet high. The memorial was also badly damaged.

A team of local volunteers worked over seventeen consecutive weekends to clear the debris and help to restore the churchyard to a place of peace and restfulness and in gratitude to them their names are recorded below.
