Our Mission Action Plan (MAP) for 2017-2020 has been written up and approved by the PCC - a copy can be found here or a display copy here.

In March 2018 we were allocated a £2500 grant by the ABBOTS LANGLEY PARISH COUNCIL towards cost of churchyard maintenance and maintaining the environment.  This goes towards the upkeep of the mowers and equipment and to pay one person a number of hours throughout the year to try to keep on top of some of the growing season.  Most of the work in the churchyard is done by a small group of volunteers who are always happy to welcome others to join them.  They usually meet on the first Saturday of each month and, depending on the time of year, they mow, strim, weed, sweep leaves, clear litter, have bonfires, etc, all the usual things you would expect to do in your garden throughout the year - albeit probably on a larger scale!  If you would like to join this team please just turn up between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm (coffee break at 11.00) - the remaining dates for 2018 are:  6th October, 3rd November and 1st December  - or make contact to find out more.
