During Covid-19 lockdown the churchyard has been closed in accordance with government and Church guidelines for the safety of vulnerable people in the local and wider community.
We have recently received notice from the Archdeacon that churchyards, as green spaces, are now open with social distancing rules applying.
So churchyard maintenance can now resume and Guy and Geoff Harrison will be coming in to mow. As always we welcome any help in the churchyard but please can we ask you not to go in when Guy and Geoff are there. Obviously social distancing rules still apply.
There will be a churchyard burial in June, with a restricted number of mourners allowed to attend.
The church building itself remains closed. We are presently working through the risk assessments and planning cleaning arrangements for the time that we are allowed to open.
There are two couples who hope to be married at Yarkhill when restrictions are lifted. This is lovely and something to look forward to. Both will be small gatherings and governed by the guidelines at the time.
Yarkhill Church Social Events are inevitably on hold for the present time but we hope to be able to give you something to look forward to before the end of the year. Watch this space!
Thank you all for your support through this difficult period.
