Lots of local residents attended the Community Event at Monyhull Church today and members of FBEC spoke to many people about the future of the chapels and the condition of the cemetery in general. It is obvious that local residents are concerned about the deteriorating condition of the chapels and are keen to know if a solution is in sight.
The Brandwood Centre, Jasmin Fields Nature Reserve, Brandwood Pool and Brandwood Forum were also represented at the event and were able to gather a few additional volunteers to help at future events on their sites.
In these times of financial constraints it is even more vital for local volunteer groups to support each other and share man power and equipment. Working together we can also spread the word about the very varied volunteering opportunities each group may have to offer.
Today’s event showed yet again what a varied and vibrant area Brandwood is !
