Cemetery Tours in September (missed the magazine in August)

FRIENDS OF BROADWATER AND WORTHING CEMETERY (FBWC)
The Friends of the cemetery are continuing their summer programme of thematic cemetery tours with both a Saturday and a Sunday tour scheduled for the month of September 2018. The dates for Inside Broadwater reader’s diaries are Saturday 1 September and Sunday 23 September 2018.

On Saturday 1 September there will be a nostalgic tour titled ‘Life After World War 1’, when previously untold stories are revealed for the first time, giving an insight to the difficult days after the end of the First World War for Worthing veterans and the community at large. This tour is directed towards the centenary marking the end of WW1. The tour will commence at 11.00 and visitors are requested to arrive at the cemetery chapels in South Farm Road by 10.45. The tour is free but a special booklet relating to the tour will be available at the modest cost of a single pound. Refreshments will be also available for a donation and these will include tea, coffee and cakes. There will be display boards and a sales stand and other items of interest.

On Sunday 23 September there will be an unusual tour titled ‘A Tree Tour’ that follows the popular ‘Nature, Flora and Fauna’ tour last month. Visitors will be astonished at the amazing variety of trees that can be found in the 14.5 acre cemetery site. This Sunday tour will commence at 14.00 and guests should arrive at the cemetery chapels in South Farm Road by 13.45. Refreshments will be available for a donation to the Friend’s funds, which are used to enhance and benefit the cemetery and therefore the community at large.

The Friends look forward to greeting you.
