Friends of the Ascension Burial Ground Working Party

This monthly working party meets at the Burial Ground (off Huntingdon Road) to enjoy some healthy outdoor exercise, helping to clear graves under expert guidance. We have returned to our monthly working pattern, observing current Covid rules throughout the two hour session. Volunteers are very welcome – you can do as much or as little as you wish – all help is greatly appreciated.  All volunteers are reminded that they should dress appropriately for work in the burial ground and take care for their own safety and that of others working. In particular, you should wear sturdy footwear since the ground is uneven and there are unseen holes caused by badgers and other wildlife, as well as overgrown gravestones. Please also bring your own gloves and do not attempt to cut thorny or spiky plants and trees without adequate protection. Secateurs, loppers and any garden waste sacks are very desirable if you have them. It can also be thirsty work, so do bring a drink as well. If you would like to support the work of the Friends, you can obtain an application form from the Parish Office or online here
