Heritage Open Events

The Friends will be taking part in Heritage Open Week and here are a few dates for your diary.

Saturday September 10th– Join us in the Civilian Garden of Remembrance to find out more about this area and why it was built by BCC 70 years ago and refurbished by the Friends. Learn more about who is buried there and why.

We will also have self guided grave tour maps and a trail of painted stones for the younger visitors.

Wednesday 14th September-join volunteers  to help record the inscriptions on memorials for posterity, as well as giving you an insight to those buried beneath and the etiquette at that time. This event will be led by Caring for God’s Acre and booking will be available via Eventbrite nearer the time or by e mail to   friendsofbec@gmail.com 

Friday 16th September– Take a stroll with our Chairman, Julia Griffin and Val Hart from the Balsall Heath Society to visit a number of graves with a connection to Balsall Heath. You dont have to have lived in that area to find the lives of those buried within are of real interest. Please e mail us direct to book a place as we have limited space.  friendsofbec@gmail.com
