Roses & restoration

The Cross of Souls – Y Groes Eneidiau, to give it it’s official welsh title was unveiled on the 21st June. The memorial was unveiled by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Dyfed – Sara Edwards and wreaths were laid including one by the Right Honourable Mark Drakeford MS -First Minister of Wales. The full story can be found under the sub heading of this website – Cross of Souls.

The rose bed extension with over 60 rose bushes. Note the Cross of Souls memorial beyond and the information panel.

As the summer weather has once again been one of wet and hot weather the grass continues to grow at an alarming rate, as do the weeds of course but regular cuts with both mowers (four of them) and strimmer’s, (two) and the occasional cut from the ride on mowers (two) of the local council ( for which we pay them) everything is looking really good at present. The rose bed has come into its’s own this year, having extended it before the memorial construction with over 60 rose bushes it now looks really lovely. Memorial restoration has inevitably been put on hold as a result of the workload, but those memorials that are left to repair etc. will be completed in the autumn and winter months. Thanks again to all our supporters and volunteers, without which it would be impossible to achieve.
