Grant to cut grass

VOLUNTEERS who mow the grass at St Mary’s churchyard in Wargrave have been given a £400 grant by the parish council.

VOLUNTEERS who mow the grass at St Mary’s churchyard in Wargrave have been given a £400 grant by the parish council.

The Friends of the Cemetery group was formed last year after the council decided to stop paying for the grass to be cut. The group had asked for £500, which is how much the council used to spend on two cuts a year.

The council also agreed to give a £500 grant to the Wargrave Parish Trust and £300 to Keep Mobile, a minibus service for elderly and disabled people.

Grants of £200 were approved for the Wargrave pop-in club, Sue Ryder and the Twyford, Wargrave and District Volunteer Centre, while £100 was given to Henley and District Citizens Advice Bureau and the Multiple Sclerosis Society and £116 to Wokingham Citizens Advice Bureau.
