Ascension Burial Ground, All Souls Lane (off Huntingdon Road)

This monthly working party meets at the Burial Ground (off Huntingdon Road) to clear graves, working under the guidance of Rod Ailes. Please bring gloves (if you have them) and stout shoes are essential, secateurs, loppers and any garden waste sacks very desirable if you have them. It can also be thirsty work, so do bring a drink as well.
Further working party dates in autumn 2017 are 18th November and 9th December (to be followed by mulled wine and mince pies).

The Friends aim to protect and enhance these remarkable burial grounds for the public benefit as a place of remembrance, spirituality, history and nature. You can read more about the Friends and join here. New members are most welcome.

Repeats every month on the third Saturday 2 times.

St. Augustine's Church, Richmond Road, Cambridge, CB4 3PS

Share a journey with Richard Footitt from Panama to Guatemala, reflecting on the history of six small countries squeezed between North and South America. Reflect also on what they have in common - beautiful scenery and a rich wildlife for example, but also a bloody past which shapes so much of the present.

This is one of the Autumn series of short talks and recitals at St. Augustine's. The full programme can be downloaded here. A small charge or retiring collection may be made where fees are requested by speakers or performers, or where there are unfunded expenses. A complimentary glass of wine or fruit juice and nibbles are served at most events. The programme is supported by Richmond, Oxford and Windsor Roads Residents’ Associations, and put together by St Augustine’s Church.
