New Bury Community Action Team's first big project in New Bury is restoring the grounds and graveyard of St James Church, which has been empty and sadly neglected for several years.
There was a fantastic turnout at St James's Church on 22nd July. Made a big difference tonight. Hosted by John Dwyer.
Thanks Paul Heslop, Kath Green, Sylvia Crossley, John Hanway, David, Tracey & friend, Mike, Leanne, sister & friend, Sandra( Eden project). A big thank-you to everyone!< More.....
We also do basic conservation work in the area, clearing paths, cutting back overgrown shrubs, generally tidying to make everywhere looked loved and cared for and, of course, litterpicking.
We have started working in the grounds of St James Church, clearing undergrowth around the graves giving a more respectful environment for those buried there.... there has been a fantastic from local residents who have come out in force to help. This church dates back to the 1800s and the cemetery also has war graves in it. Below is a link to more information about the history of St James church, and a link to an article in the Bolton News from 2017.
We would love new volunteers to join us!! We will be tackling new projects as time goes on.... let's make this area more beautiful for all its residents.
