Melville Church Cemetery Workday, 2020

The trustees of Melville Church Cemetery sincerely thank the twelve folk who arrived at 8:30 am on Saturday, July 25th, 2020 to work on the maintenance of this beautiful graveyard.  Volunteers from Kincardine and Lower Kintore cooperated to right tipped gravestones, fill in sunken graves, pull ancient stumps, trim bushes and fill and re-seed spots needing attention.  All brought tools and one person arrived with a tractor which helped in pulling stumps and carrying buckets of loam where needed.  

What a great job done so cheerfully!

A big SHOUT OUT to all these caring community members from Trustees Rick Murch, Roy Grierson and Dean Mitchell.
