WORKING SESSIONS AT THE CEMETERY

Official working sessions are every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, from 13.30-16.00, plus some Thursday mornings, 10-12, please check the Events Calendar for specific dates.  All members are covered by insurance and there will be a committee member there with a first aid kit, just in case. 

 You are welcome to turn up for these sessions and join us. Please park near the Long Lane entrance, there's room for several cars alongside the road.

  • Please bring secateurs, shears and tough gardening gloves to deal with the nettles and brambles. A  strimmer or similar would also be useful if you have one (cordless - no power supply is available up there). A rake to gather stuff together is also useful.
  • We have a number of large builders' bags which we fill with the cut down vegetation. These can then be taken to the bottom corner of the cemetery by Long Lane, just above the wall separating the cemetery from Loxley Nursery. There is a large pile of green waste - just add yours here.
  • All non-green waste must be removed please, and piled separately or put into sacks for disposal. You will probably find lots of plastic waste from wreaths, flowers, ornaments etc. which cannot be recyled with the green waste.
