Rectory Lane Cemetery, Berkhamsted

Join a monthly work party

Thinking of joining us?  


Work parties are informal small get-togethers, usually held on the first Sunday in every month, 2pm – 4pm, but other ad hoc sessions are also organised when necessary to keep the Cemetery a welcoming and well-kempt place.  Tasks include mowing or strimming, raking leaves or mown grass, weeding, clearing paths, tidying up the Garden of Remembrance or the Volunteers’ Retreat, or undertaking min-projects such as planting up areas, maintaining buildings and structures, managing our compost bins.

This role would suit you if you:

  • Enjoy working out of doors
  • Are well enough to be physically active for two hours
  • Can commit two hours on the first Sunday of each month, most months.

The project would:

  • Provide the necessary tools, but you can always bring your own
  • Explain the tasks to be done and Health and Safety considerations
  • Provide refreshments!
