Supporting the Local Community

Carnell undertook grounds maintenance over a period of two weeks at St. Michael & All Angels’ Church in Penkridge as part of their on-going voluntary commitment to local causes.  With the church being a close neighbour of the Carnell head office, we were aware that some help was needed bringing the graveyard access up to standard and so offered our services.  During a conversation with Andrew French the Deputy Warden, a wish list was put together of jobs that the church’s elderly volunteers could not carry out themselves.
Activities undertaken included:

  • Paths uncovered that were buried under turf.
  • Concrete edgings replaced rotten wooden edgings in memorial garden.
  • Trees trimmed, weeds cleared and leaves swept up.
  • Benches brushed down to remove moss and re-painted.
  • Light boxes which illuminate church exterior cleared of vegetation.
  • Memorial stones renovated.

St. Michael & All Angels’ Deputy Warden, Andrew French:  “It goes without saying that the end result was way in excess of any aspirations we may have had and has given new focus and drive in the on-going task of maintaining and upgrading the church grounds. Your workforce were a credit to Carnell and I would ask you to pass on our thanks to them.
