Church wall nears completion
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

November 18, 2008: Martin Barrett, Jacobstowe PCC secretary, writes: "Those of you who pass Jacobstowe Church regularly will know that work on the new fence is now well in hand. The dwarf wall has been completed, the fence posts are in and twelve panels have been installed with another three coming in the next week or two. The remaining panels will be ordered soon. The swift progress over the last few weeks was made possible by an army of volunteers on Saturdays removing the old fence and posts, demolishing the old wall, and preparing the ground for the mason to reconstruct the wall. So a big thank you to all those volunteers and in particular to Steve Sellis for providing the plant and his know how. We were spoiled rotten by our kind lady neighbours who saw to it that we were well fed and watered.

Community interest in this historic building goes from strength to strength, with a good body of volunteers helping to maintain the churchyard and ensuring that the grass is cut regularly. Thank you all, and well done."

Martin adds that the Jacobstowe Carol Service will be on Thursday December 18th at 7pm. The following Tuesday December 23rd there will be a Crib Service at 6 pm especially for children but of course all are welcome (followed by light refreshments). On Christmas Day a Family Holy Communion service will be held at 9.30am.
