Sunday 17 September 2017, 3pm - Guided Walk, "Sporting Stars"

The sixth and last of year’s guided walks will take place on Sunday 17 September, starting at 3pm. This will be a reprise of the new walk, entitled “Sporting Stars”, first staged in June this year. In recent months our researchers have uncovered the stories of several eminent sports people who are buried in Hyde Park Cemetery. You will find out all about them on this walk.

As with previous Guided Walks, this one is free of charge, although donations to the Friends are always much appreciated. Please meet near the main entrance on Carr Lane, in good time for a prompt start at 3pm. The pace of the walk will be gentle and the total distance covered will be only about half to three quarters of a mile.

This walk is in association with the St Leger Festival 2017.

Saturday 7 October 2017 (NOTE DATE CHANGE), 9:30am until 12 noon - Working Morning

Just for this month only, we have had to move our Working Morning to the first Saturday. This is because we shall be at the Doncaster & District Family History Fair on 14 October. We hope this doesn’t inconvenience you.

Working Morning – This month’s opportunity to make a very direct contribution to the improvement of the cemetery. We always have a variety of tasks to carry out, so there’s something for people of all abilities. Please come along and lend a hand. We’d suggest that you wear the sort of clothing that you might use for gardening and please wear stout footwear.
We are very grateful to Adrian Welch Glass & Glazing for letting us use the washing and toilet facilities in his premises during these sessions.
