An inscribed wooden baton marking the event was then presented to Mrs Mary Beal, Churchwarden, which will be displayed in the church.

St Mary's Church One of the joys of Hemyock is the state of the Churchyard. Whether it is in the snowdrop season or with the explosion of roses it is a part of the village which always gets favourable comments from visitors. Along with the dedicated work of the flower bed keepers this is largely due to one man, John Bimson.
