I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our supporters, volunteers and “Friends” of the Thomas & Elizabeth Mayhook Charity a very happy Christmas and a prosperous and peaceful New Year. The Trustees have a lot of work to do in the next twelve months, in particular to continue the restoration of the uneven soil levels of the cemetery and the removal of the very large old stone bases that scatter the cemetery. These were left in situ in 1977 when the memorials themselves were removed to the perimeter wall. Once these works are completed we will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and St David’s Cemetery will once again become a place of pride and dignity in which our descendants can rest in peace.
The Trustees are still awaiting the decision on a further grant application in order to complete the above works and this should be known early in the New Year. In the meantime, the Trustees will continue to plan ahead whatever happens. Do keep “logging on” to the website for further updates and latest news. Merry Christmas to you all.
