How can you help?
We are looking for volunteers to assist us with the restoration work of the Old Cemetery. We also need people to get involved with the running of the Friends group and the administration that is required. Tour Guides will also be required who have a good knowledge of the Cemeteries or who are willing to learn. Finally, we need donations to help with the work, not just financial but also donations of aggregates and materials.
As a community group we have a long journey ahead of us, with a massive undertaking that will be both challenging and rewarding at the same time.
Over the coming months we shall draw up an Action Plan based on professional assessments.
We have already identified that a priority must be the Old Cemetery and we will start work shortly.
