We are now ‘Friends of Key Hill & Warstone Lane Cemeteries’ so those who may have got mixed up in years past and went to the wrong cemetery, won’t have that problem this year, secondly, we are holding the event over two days this year, 12th and 13th September, from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
It would be great to see you there, if not for the two days – one of them.
This is a very important date for our calendar at the Cemetery, as it is our main fund raising event of the year for these very important Cemeteries.
Since last year’s very successful open day, when a lot of my colleagues turned out to support us, we have restored several memorials and with your support and help we can restore a lot more in the coming year.
Please come along and have a very enjoyable day out, tell your friends and family about us, who knows you may even find out you have relatives interred in Key Hill Cemetery, alongside the likes of Joseph Chamberlain (MP), Alfred Bird (of Birds Custard) and many more great names of Birmingham.
As last year, there will be lots to do and see and plenty to keep the kids occupied. Why not dress up in Victorian costume as did many of my friends last year, and be part of the fun? Remember your support is needed and would be very welcome.
Cemeteries ‘Open Day’
Saturday 12th/Sunday 13th September. 10am till 4pm each day.
Voluntary Help Is Needed On Both Days
Can you spare a few hours to help out on a stall, direct people to the main events in Key Hill Cemetery or work as a steward directing people to parking areas?
