Quadron Heart of England in Bloom Grounds Maintenance Award

Volunteers at the Closed Churchyard
of
The Priory Church of St Mary The Virgin - Tutbury

The beautiful Norman building of The Priory Church of St Mary the Virgin dates from the eleventh century and is in a village setting, close to Tutbury Castle with views over the Dove Valley to the Peak District.

The closed churchyard is cared for by a small group of volunteers who, undaunted by weather conditions, continue to uphold a very high standard of grounds maintenance which is in keeping for such an historic building. It is a real credit to the group who work hard to maintain the churchyard.

Award Presentation

On Sunday 14th September Cllr Liz Staples, Chairman of Tutbury in Bloom presented the award to Roger Sharp, leader of the volunteers group, at the 11 am service at St. Mary's Priory Church.












Afterwards those volunteers who were at the service posed for an "official" photograph in the War Memorial Garden that they and their colleagues had cared for so well.















And then in a more normal pose!




















Congratulations to all the volunteers and thank you for your efforts - they are much appreciated.
