A Heritage Asset Which is Still at Risk

Dating from the 1830’s Saron Graveyard is a vital part of the historic fabric of our village which connects the Troedyrhiw of today with its past.

Neglect, lack of maintenance, vandalism, colonisation by weeds and trees and collapse of boundary walls have all taken their toll. Friends of Saron volunteers have been working hard on a shoestring budget to reverse this degradation and restore an important heritage asset to a condition that we can all be proud of.

If our volunteers had not intervened when they did it is likely that Saron Graveyard would have reached the point of no return. We feel a great sense of satisfaction at the difference that our programme of improvement work has made and remain determined to see this project through to a successful conclusion.

Take a look at what our volunteers were doing last Saturday. Very many thanks to Steve C., Simon, Mark, Steve E., Sheila, Andrew, Phil, Brian, Frances, Chris and David for yet another day’s hard but rewarding work.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP US IN ANY WAY PLEASE EMAIL friendsofsaron@gmail.com OR SPEAK TO ANY FRIENDS OF SARON MEMBER.

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
