‘Love our trees’ was the theme chosen by the Friends of Burngreave Cemetery for their annual well dressing, launched by the Lord Mayor in Burngreave cemetery on Sunday 9th July.

Several community members, local councillors, and visitors from as far away as Oxfordshire created the image, which will stay by the site of the medieval well until 23rd July.

Other activities in the cemetery in the near future include guided walks around some of the interesting war graves in the cemetery, banner-making workshops, installing a sundial, and a Guinness Book of Records hula-hooping attempt!

Come and join us any Sunday 11am – 3pm at the Old Mortuary chapel near to the Melrose Road entrance. http://www.friendsofburngreavecemetery.btck.co.uk

We want your feed back!

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
