Grave times for Bradda Dads

Following a highly successful campaign for the Methodist Church, Bradda Dads embarked on fixing four graves in the St Barnabas Church graveyard, plus an additional headstone that was thought to be a casualty of the recent earthquake. Tea and biscuits by Sheena Darwent.

Leaning over, but not for long

Did the recent earthquake topple this one?

Neal adopts a fine technique and Mick keeps a keen eye open for the final positioning

Super-strong Mick holds up the stone all on his own. Kodge is impressed...

A bit of jiggling, and potential disaster is averted!

Finally, laid to rest.
