Generous shoppers dug deep into their pockets to help worshippers keep their chapel’s graveyard looking smart.
The congregation at Fernlee Chapel, Whaley Bridge, raised £225 through bag packing, a raffle and generous donations at Tesco.
The next event to raise money for the graveyard will be a coffee morning at the Mechanics Institute on Saturday, July 29, from 9.30am to 12noon. There will be a cake stall, tombola and raffle.
The money will go towards the £400 cost of grass cutting at the cemetery. In recent years, the congregation has grown smaller and older and no longer has the manpower to maintain the graveyard itself.
