Special events

Ascension Burial Ground, All Souls Lane (off Huntingdon Road)

Why pay gym fees when you can have some healthy outdoor exercise, helping to clear graves under expert guidance as part of this 'macro-gardening' project. This monthly working party meets for a couple of hours monthly at the Burial Ground (off Huntingdon Road), to work under the guidance of Rod Ailes. Warm clothing, stout shoes and gloves are advised, and you can do as much or as little as you wish - all help will be greatly appreciated. Tools will be available but you can also bring along your own secateurs, loppers and waste sacks, and do bring a drink as well, as it can be thirsty work.
Dates for 2018:
17th February, 17th March, 21st April, 26th May (change of date), 16th June, 21st July
