Friends of Saron volunteers have been working hard in the graveyard for over a week.
A heavy day’s work began early on Friday 6th March when the team took delivery of 16½ tonnes of topsoil which was then barrowed onto the site from the roadside. The day continued with levelling and grave improvement tasks being carried out in part of the ‘showpiece area’ which is now under development.
On Saturday 7th March the team started early and worked until after dark. The work programme included filling in low spots, removing trip hazards, repositioning some heavy masonry, repair of damaged headstones, planting of rose shrubs and spreading and consolidation of topsoil to produce an even surface for sowing of wild flower seeds.
Monday 9th March to Monday 16th March has seen continuing work by Friends of Saron volunteers. In all weathers members of the group have turned out as and when work and other commitments have allowed. Many thanks are due to the following who have shown their support on the Saron site over the past 11 days – Steve C, Tommy, Simon, Sheila, Steve E, Jake, Andrew, David, Mark, Joe, Phil, John, Tony. Particular thanks are due to Jake Castle of Keep Wales Tidy who continues to support this project in many ways.
