Families show that they care

It is very pleasing that, after many years of being denied access to family plots in Saron Graveyard, some people are now able to pay due respect to their forebears by visiting and caring for their graves. Peter Smith of Bargoed recently arranged for  the grave of much loved grandparents to be professionally cleaned and the results can be seen  below:-

Friends of Saron are aware of others who will also wish to attend to family graves in this way and will be happy to support anyone with this in mind who would like to get in touch with them at friendsofsaron@gmail.com

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. 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
