DISCOVERING THE CEMETERY ON EASTER SUNDAY
Over 114 visitors braved the weather to join in Easter Sunday’s Discovery Trail at the Rectory Lane Cemetery. Guides wearing Easter bonnets were on hand to help with clues and information about the various parts of the Cemetery. The trail included counting yew trees, finding particular graves, learning about the Cemetery bees and testing the wooden xylophone which hangs from one of the trees.
Kate Campbell, Community Engagement Officer said,” We were delighted to see so many new faces – one family just happened to be driving through from Aylesbury, saw the notice and were surprised by their spontaneous find. We hope that that all the families will be back to join in the many other events we have planned. They just need to keep an eye on our Facebook page.”
The children were rewarded with Easter eggs kindly donated by Tesco, Waitrose and Penella Warren.
