Harriet Carty talks grassland management at Whitton, Shropshire

We have been enjoying planning a series of online webinar sessions to help support people in managing burial grounds. These will start running within the next few months.

The topics will cover the many aspects of managing burial grounds – ranging from creating a management plan, caring for veteran trees, recording memorials, engaging the wider community, managing for wildflowers, encouraging wildlife and running a volunteer group (to name a few).

We are finalising the details and will be sharing them very soon – why not pop your email address in the form below to be notified directly?

Registration for webinars is essential. Please contact anna@cfga.org.uk to register. 
The webinars are free, but donations are welcome.

First we have a series of three webinars by Harold Mytum, Professor of Archaeology at Liverpool University. Harold is a leading expert on the study of graveyard memorials and author of several books and numerous papers. Graveyards across the UK contain a treasure trove of memorials erected over the past three centuries. Through their shapes and designs, as well as their inscriptions, they reveal an enduring record of individuals, social and religious beliefs, and of family and local history. Join the webinars to discover more about this fascinating topic.
