Volunteers are keeping the gardens in tip top condition at St Andrew's Anglican Church in Tinwald.

While Lorraine Keeley and Cyril Keen lovingly look after the flower beds, Robert Keeley prunes trees and David Candy takes care of the large rear garden and vegetable patches.

The church has a regular congregation of around 20 for 10am Sunday services and a wedding will be held at the venue soon.

A new carpet inside the church has been funded by a benefactor and is being laid later this month.

Mr Keen said he started attending the church four years ago and fell in love with it and its tranquil setting.

Helping to take care of the church garden was a real pleasure, he said.
