Restoration Continues

Major ground restoration has begun at the north section of the cemetery at the rear of the church. This has involved the use of heavy machinery in order to remove four damaged and fallen headstones to the boundary wall so that the cemetery ground can be levelled sufficiently for the use of a mower and also the removal of a considerable amount of old rubble which had been dumped there previously. This area will be seeded during the course of the next week and will be a massive improvement to this area which is the first thing the public see when walking along the footpath. The charity is indebted to Mr. Mick Butler of West Wales Gardening for his efforts and hard work in bringing this area of the cemetery back to an acceptable standard. Due to financial constraints the charity will be looking to scale back any further major restoration until next year but will continue where possible the repair and restoration of damaged and broken memorials, one of which in particular will be restored this Sunday with the use of  hydraulic lifting machinery. A full story of this restoration will appear in due course. The photograph below shows the five memorials rescued from the ground during the restoration. One which is broken in two will be restored in the near future.
