Friends of the Milton Road Cemetery with the display

A BANNER detailing the past of a Weston graveyard is being put on show to the public.

The information boards, designed by the town council and Friends of the Milton Road Cemetery, are on display at North Somerset Museum in Burlington Street until February 5.

They will then be transferred on February 8 to The Blakehay theatre in Wadham Street, before spending a further two weeks at Weston Library from February 22.

Among the items featured on the signs are famous people buried there and historic parts of the grounds.

The travelling display comes as part of the £50,000 refurbishment of the cemetery's Church of England Chapel.

To get involved with the Friends of Milton Road Cemetery call Zoe Clements at Weston Town Council on 01934 632567.
