Snow joke! Clearing a path to Brayton

It really was a team effort on Saturday (9 Jan 2010) morning ... as a merry band of gentlemen set about clearing the snow from the paths leading to Brayton Church. Both front and rear paths were cleared and gritted in double-quick time (largely thanks to Julian's wonderful snow clearing contraption), allowing a safe passage to the welcome warmth of the coffee morning.

There was even time for a few photographs of the 'A' team ... and the beautiful Church surrounded by snow. Why not take a look at them here

(p.s. please check that you have the right link to the Parish website - you should have in your favourites:
