On behalf of the Committee, I would like to thank all our members and volunteers for their support over what has been a most difficult year for everyone. I hope you and your families have stayed safe and well, and that you can enjoy Christmastime together if you are able and choose to do so. To anyone who has lost a loved one in the pandemic, we send our heartfelt sympathy.


We all hope for better days ahead in 2021 and are thankful that our volunteers have stayed in touch through the lockdowns and have returned to work at the cemetery when restrictions were lifted to allow volunteering to re-start. It was lovely to see everyone again.

Thank you to all our members who supported us this year, and I so hope you will renew your memberships next year, which helps us enormously to keep our organisation going!

With all good wishes for Christmas and the New Year
