Naseby Village Pride

Proud villagers not dampened by drizzle!

A week produces spectacular results!

In the middle of September, a scheme was devised whereby as many people as would like to could help to tidy the village churchyard. A name was chosen – Naseby Village Pride.  Naseby Village Pride is not a special group of people who want to do all the work themselves, it is a happy, open gathering of anyone who cares for the village and is able to spare a little time to join in.

Balloons and the Church

The first project involved a major clearance in the churchyard, where the elderflower bushes had engulfed yew trees, holly, holm oak, conifers and sycamore.  Ivy had rampaged over gravestones and memorials, along walls built of old Naseby bricks, and up substantial trees of yew and sycamore.

Balloons outside the Naseby HQ shop and on the church gateway showed that there was fun to be had inside – fun revealing centuries old monuments and tombstones – fun finding the old boundary wall under the ivy and elder – fun revealing our beautiful yew tree along Newlands and fun clearing the undergrowth that is threatens the church fabric beyond the chancel.

About ten people took part during the week, and several more said they would help on future projects.

You may not be able to help this time, but as one villager remarked before we ever began, he thought Naseby Village Pride was a jolly good idea, and it should take place regularly about every two months! 

This time, enjoy looking at the churchyard: go into it and wander round, and see whether you couldn’t be part of Naseby Pride in the future.
