The historic gates of Saron graveyard must have suffered a few knocks over the past 160 years. We were not surprised to find when the gates were taken away for refurbishment that some decorative cast iron finials were damaged and missing. Undeterred, some of our volunteers set to and learned new skills. They are now close to completing the task of returning the gates to their former glory. This will be an important addition to the improvements which have been taking place in the graveyard and will also benefit the local area.
The writer is full of amazement and admiration at the range of abilities of our volunteers.
It is hoped that these replacement gate parts will be fitted in the not too distant future.
