The cemetery at Stubbs Hill was consecrated in 1888 and has been in use since for the burial of anyone who resides within our Parish. As the top field is full, the bottom field is now in use and anyone visiting recently will have observed that the site needs some attention and updates.
Our fabric team have drawn up proposals for much needed repairs to the current path and the installation of a new path into and around the lower field to improve general and disabled access. These plans have been put out to tender and quotes to carry them out are around £20,000.
There are also fixes required on the porch and the water supply, and plans to introduce new signage to try and stop the current levels of rubbish left around the area, and around another £1,000 is needed here.
On top of this, maintenance usually costs around £2,000 per year, to keep the area free from brambles and looking tidy for visitors who come to pay their respects.
We hope you’ll all agree that this work is necessary in order to revive this place which is so special to many. We are fortunate to have received some funds from the Binfield Parish Council under their grant scheme,
but more is required to complete it all.
We would hugely appreciate any contribution anyone is able to make at this time.
If it happens that any funds are received over the amount required for this work, any remaining money will be added to The Church Care Project which is fundraising for all of our church spaces, including the cemetery.
