The Friends of Blackburn Old Cemetery



Great news we have been chosen by the Co-op to be one of this years (Nov 2018/Oct 2019) local community fund recipients.  If you are a member of the Co-op please log into your account and nominate us as your choice. This costs you nothing but will mean a great deal to us.

Morning working parties are held on Wednesdays from 10.30am till 12.30pm approx. Afternoon working parties are held on Mondays from 1.00pm till 3.00pm approx.  

If you do come along to any of our working parties please make sure you wear suitable clothing, gloves & footwear.  We will provide tools. Any help is greatly appreciated, even if it is just a one off visit. 

GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Services www.greenthumb.co.uk/raf have kindly treated the 3 lawns around the Memorial, Poppy & Mary's gardens free of charge.

Please note Blackburn with Darwen Council issued a new Public Spaces Protection Order which came into effect on 18th January 2018 for 3 years. Below is a section from the order:
