The Friends of Burngreave Cemetery celebrated National Apple Day on Sunday 25th October with a variety of activities in the chapel.

Alongside the Climate Change exhibition, Julian Brandran’s display of delicious apple varieties for tasting pleased a number of visitors including May Norwood, “It was fun because there were lots of different apples and I love apples. Also the Treasure hunt was cool.” Thanks also to Kate and Susannah from Abundance who brought in a wheelbarrow full of locally picked fruit.

Three new apple trees funded by the Friends were planted near the adventure playground. More trees provided by the City Council will be planted in the cemetery in the New Year – (this is a change from the advertised Monday December 14th).

Youngsters and their parents enjoyed the pumpkin carving and the Fair Trade Treasure Hunt which was won by Maya Williams- Hamm. Maya said, “I liked where the prizes were hidden and getting the bookmark.”

The Cemetery Chapel is open every Sunday 12 noon to 2.00pm.
