The Trust needs to raise £10,500 in order to tarmac a section of one of the Cemetery roads that is urgently in need of repair. To help with this we are organising a sponsored walk which will take place around the Cemetery grounds on Saturday 8th April. You are welcome to join in on the day. Sponsor forms are available from the Cemetery Office. It is also possible to sponsor Trust staff and volunteers who are taking part.
Alternatively a donation towards the repair can be made by either clicking on the "Donate" icon below, or by sending by post to the Cemetery Office if preferred.
