Productive volunteer sessions in Saron Graveyard

Volunteers of the Saron Graveyard Project, Troedyrhiw held two productive sessions in the graveyard last week.

A floral tribute in memory of Peter Smith, a passionate supporter of this project who passed away recently, was laid on his grandparents’ grave.

The vision is to create SARON MEMORIAL & WILDLIFE GARDEN and, to this end, we have been making plans with Willows Youth to add some additional habitat features to those that are already in place. With the help of Dan Townsend, the youth leader at the Willows, a raised bed planted as a Sensory Garden was installed. Dan took back to the Willows some kits for the young people to make up into nesting boxes and bug boxes that we hope will be erected in gardens and other places across the village.

Other volunteers got stuck in to complete these important tasks:-

  1. Regular weeding is an essential part of site maintenance at this stage of the project and Lynda and Sheila’s hard work made an enormous improvement to the appearance of the site.
  2. Our volunteers have abilities and experience in many areas and Simon was able to demonstrate, once again, his stone wall building skills.
