Group seeks supporters

People who are interested in the history of a Chesterfield cemetery are invited to attend a meeting.

The Friends of Spital cemetery are holding a meeting at the Town Hall on Friday, February 24, at 6pm.

The group will welcome anyone who would support their efforts in helping to keep the group active.

Over the last four years, with the help of the Community Payback group, volunteers have cleared a lot of the overgrown areas of the cemetery.

A lot of the founders of Chesterfield are buried within the cemetery and the group would like to collect information about these people and turn them into records for all to see.
