Diary: Saturday 17 April 2021

Yes Saturday, not Sunday this week. Lots to do but as Alan and Rita are due their second Covid jab on Sunday, they asked the other Friends if they could make it on Saturday instead. Everyone agreed so here we are, Astrid, Dave, Chris, Alan and Rita! The boys worked really hard today in the warm sunshine, and finished all the preparation work on the White M119 grave, It was a hard job but well worth the effort, next job is to cement the kerbs back together, so one more working session should see the job finished. They also noticed another inscription on the large bottom tier so this was recorded and will be added to the database. Astrid and Rita finished weeding the wild flower plot and scattered poppy, corn cockle corn marigold and quaking grass seeds, after giving the ground a good watering. They then moved over to the bluebell area and started to tidy up this area.

We have been notified by Fine Memorial that they will be back in the cemetery on Monday to start on another memorial that the Friends are having restored.
