Friends of Saron are committed to an accelerated programme of improvement work to bring part of the graveyard to a condition which will have a high visual impact. This will include refitting of refurbished chapel gates, more level ground, reduced trip hazards, improved access to graves and a profusion of wild flowers. Such a demonstration of the vision and abilities of our group will, we hope, help us to unlock funding (on behalf of the site owner) for urgently necessary structural work.
Another Volunteer Day held towards the end of January carried the on-site work a stage further. Many thanks are due to Tommy, Sheila, Andrew, Steve E., Steve C., Simon, Nicola, David and Angela for their ongoing support and hard work.
Once again, some interesting discoveries were made when two headstones dating back to the 1850’s were exposed when the soil which had been covering them was carefully removed.
