A VALE church is celebrating after winning an award for Best Kept Churchyard.
St Faith’s Church, Overbury, won the title and a certificate and shrubs were presented to a team of volunteers.
Bridget Worley, who led the band of volunteers, said they were delighted to have won.
“Our volunteers come out in all weathers to maintain the churchyard and it is wonderful to have their efforts recognised ,” she said.
Frank Hill, chairman of the Worcestershire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, said: “We are very pleased that our competition can bring some cheer to those who give so much time to maintaining our churches and churchyards.”
St Michael’s Church, Little Witley, achieved second place in the under one acre competition.
