Friends of the Western Cemetery


I was pleased to join with members of the Friends of the Western Cemetery today as they welcomed volunteers from Barclays Bank who had come to do some volunteering work in the cemetery.  They planted some plants next to the new cremated remains area in the cemetery.

It may not be the most obvious thing but it has to be said that the Western Cemetery is very much a hidden gem in the West End.  The Friends group are doing a great job and I am always happy to support them.

I was pleased to see volunteers from Barclays Bank helping the Friends group today and making a real difference to the area.  Banks do not have the best reputation at this moment in time and therefore while it may not entirely have made made reparation it was good to see Barclays staff putting something back into the community.
