Ivy Clearance

Ivy Clearance at Brandwood End Cemetery

Ivy is incredibly invasive and can kill trees if left unstopped.  On the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd January volunteers from Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery attacked some ivy which was wrapped around a tree and several graves.  After several hours of hard graft the graves were once again visible and the tree freed of the ivy growth.  Whilst some work is still left to do on clearing the graves of roots the area blighted by ivy looks freer and lighter.  A big thank you to the volunteers of Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery for once again helping to improve the environment for all those that visit the grounds.

Come and meet new people and help the Cemetery too!

We need volunteers to come and help tidy up the Cemetery.  We meet at 10 at The Lodge for an hour or so of litter picking and tidying up of the beautiful environment here at Brandwood End Cemetery.

All you need is sturdy clothes and shoes and a pair of gardening gloves.  We provide litter pickers, bags and some new faces!

No need to let us know you are coming just turn up on the day.  And keep an eye on our website in case of any changes.

See you there!
