Columbarium, Barton Grange

Many of us have expressed a need for a 'tidying up' of the Columbarium; rotting woodwork, dirty stonework, moss invasion, etc.

But not any more :)

Thanks to Peter (Yammy) Ashton-Yamnikar the place is looking as good as new. Here are Yammy's photos. Well done that man!

Yes indeed, 'well done that man ' !

Yammy, I notice that you are standing in front of two empty spaces, top row, have you ear marked one for yourself ? Guys like me, who expect to live for ever, have not yet done our home work and booked a place. It would perhaps be interesting to know how to go about doing this before all places are taken ... or can one bunk up with old mates ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results
