All Saints Church, East Budleigh, Parochial Parish Council (PCC) needs a secretary and a deputy churchwarden. The only qualifications are a willingness to help, and that you need to have been living in the parish for 6 months and be on the parish electoral roll. There are only 4-6 meetings per year. There are lots of experienced PCC members to provide advice, so don't be shy to volunteer. If you are interested please get in touch with Paul Kurowski on 01395 742942 or firstname.lastname@example.org
All Saints East Budleigh has a beautiful "wild" churchyard, and we want to improve the appearance of it whilst maintaining its natural beauty. Some graves are maintained by family members, but others are very overgrown. We are hoping to start an "Adopt a Grave" scheme where individuals take responsibility for maintaining a plot. If you are interested in doing this at All Saints, and would like to help then come to our initial meeting on Saturday 12th May at 10.00 - meet at the Church entrance - or phone/e-mail and let us know – you can select a grave/memorial that you would like to maintain and contribute to the peace and beauty of our Churchyard.
