Since 2014, we have been working together as volunteers to drive a community initiative that is helping to conserve and enhance St Peter’s and its churchyards.
These efforts have laid the groundwork for our flagship project at the old Cemetery behind the Rex Cinema, where we are working to conserve historic monuments, and repair and rebuild structures such as sexton’s hut, the boundary walls and gate piers. We are also working to provide new seating, interpretation, paths and steps, and to manage the natural environment to encourage wildlife and wildflowers. Thanks to the tireless efforts of local volunteers, we have now secured major funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to take this project further.
Volunteering for the Friends is a great way to get out in the open, get exercise, make new friends and to give something back to the Berkhamsted community.
