As part of the Heritage Open Days weekend across England and Wales, the Friends will be holding a special event in Rectory Lane Cemetery.
Visitors will be able to see the progress of the Rectory Lane Cemetery Project in the last three years and follow self-guided tours to learn about the plans for this peaceful haven. Volunteers will be on hand at strategic points around the three-acre site to explain the history of the Cemetery and explain the enhancements planned with the recent grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
All are welcome and we are particularly keen to meet with stakeholders who are neighbours or local families to chat to them about how the site will change over the next three years. Work will be phased and detailed announcements prior to work commencing people will be available via local noticeboards and our website.
