Poor weather can’t deter Bramley war grave clean-up volunteers

It may have been a wet end to September but it didn’t deter the small but dedicated band of volunteers carrying out their fortnightly maintenance of war graves in Bramley.

The group meets every other Wednesday afternoon to help clear grass and weeds from the war graves in Bramley Baptist Churchyard.

Volunteer Ian Johnstone said:

“A tad on the wet side this lunchtime for our Bramley Baptist War Graves clean up session. A bit too wet to tackle the war graves in the long grass with the strimmers so just a litter pick around the whole of the graveyard.

“Joe did us proud with the mower on Monday on the flatter areas and paths so we’ll hope for better weather in a fortnight on our next session.”
