The Friends Of Syston Cemetery (FOSC) would like to wish you all you wish for yourselves for 2022.
January was a quiet month with only the wreaths to remove as they die off and the general tidying up as necessary. The Christmas week was extremely busy with cars and visitors to the cemetery and the chapel. Lots of candles were lit on the open days.
Christmas has been so peaceful here with lots of special memories of loved ones, lots of tributes which made everything look beautiful with even some winter cherry blossoms showing up for Christmas Day.
It will soon be spring – with longer warmer days, snowdrops, daffodils, bluebells and crocus giving us some wonderful colour and hopefully the blossoms will soon be appearing as well as the birds singing in the trees, I can’t wait.
I shall be decorating the chapel for St Valentine’s Day in February and for St David’s Day and Mothering Sunday in March.
There is still the post Christmas display available to see in the chapel.
Remember also that the chapel is available to hire for celebrations and funerals by contacting Catherine Voyce at the Syston Town Council office, tel: 0116 260 7150.
