Apart from all the hard work the Friends achieve they also enjoy organising a small number of events each year. These events provide a social venue for the members themselves and also help to raise the profile of cemetery and the work of all the volunteers. These events also give us a platform to invite and meet others who might take an interest in the cemetery and become members. These Events are open to everyone to attend and there is sometimes a retiring collection at the end of proceedings. There are records of other events in our members section.

Upcoming events include:

Heritage Open Days

Sunday 10 September 2017.

We will be holding an open day in the cemetery, where volunteers will be on hand to help you find graves and with any genealogical research you might have. They will also be on hand to assist you learn more about the cemetery's history and conservation through short guided tours.

This will also be an additional working day in our efforts to help tidy up, preserve and enhance the site and we invite members of the public to help out our teams. You can come along for as long or as short a time as you want and work as much or as little; it's not only heavy stuff like lifting, digging and hacking, but also light work such as checking inscriptions, brushing kerbs or light weeding. It's fantastic exercise, therapeutic and to see the site slowly transformed is highly rewarding.

If you want to take part you'll be more than welcome, although you can just come along to see the progress being made in returning the neglected place into a garden of remembrance. Everyone welcome.

Parking will be confirmed closer to the time. Visitors are advised to tread carefully while in the cemetery.
