National Cemeteries Week - Open Day
By Friends of Lister Lane Cemetery, May 25 2019 11:25AM
The Cemetery was opened on Sunday 19th May as part of National Cemeteries Week (NCW) which ran from 11th to 19th May 2019. NCW is coordinated by the National Federation of Cemetery Friends to highlight the work of cemetery Friends groups throughout the UK whose volunteers work hard to support the owners in keeping local cemeteries and burial grounds tidy and safe. The work undertaken by cemetery Friends includes engaging with the community through events and Open days.
The colourful display of flowers currently in bloom near the Lister Lane entrance creates a welcoming sight for visitors entering the cemetery from Lister Lane. This is all down to the hard work and dedication of our team of lady gardeners.
On Sunday, our visitors were able to enjoy guided tours led by David Glover and Stuart Wilkinson or search for family graves, partake of refreshments and have a chat with our friendly volunteers.
