Safety and Security

Friends of Saron have produced detailed proposals and  obtained reasonable quotations from two local contractors for the repair of the collapsed retaining wall at the back of the Saron site next to the path which connects Chapel Street to Cardiff Road.

The leaseholder is considering this proposal and, whilst we would be delighted if they agreed to pay for this work, it might be more realistic to expect them to support bids to major funding providers.

Retaining wall constructed with rock filled wire baskets.

The construction of this type of wall, topped by a fence, will restore the integrity of the boundary, prevent further damage to the graves in this area and provide the safety and security which are currently lacking.

Please come to our AGM on 12th April to find out more and let us know what you think of this proposal.

For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
