On the evening of Thursday 9th August, the Friends hosted an event to formally mark the unveiling of a metal plaque commissioned by the former Secretary and a founding member of the Friends group, Harriet Dell. The plaque cast by Rudi Holmes includes a poem written by his sister Gaia reflecting on how different cultures blend together within a community.
Following the unveiling, guests and Friends seated on the terrace leading to the lower section of the cemetery listened to a variety of verse including readings by Gaia, David Glover and Richard Robinson.
