Workers in the Cemetery

Workers in the Cemetery

Work in the Cemetery continues apace! Teams of 5 or 6 long-term unemployed men have been working with Parks’ staff for a month at a time and they are really making a difference! Paths are clearer, with the edges now well defined, a state not seen for many years.
