Maldon: Widow's labour of love for cemetery garden
11:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A widow has taken on the task of maintaining a memorial garden.
Kay Whaley volunteered to weed and plant strips of ground beside the memorial wall at Maldon Cemetery to make it a place of respect and peace.
Mrs Whaley, of Hadrians Way, Heybridge, said: “The parks department at Maldon District Council is very supportive, but their funding can only go so far and they don’t have the money to do it.
“They spray the weeds with weedkiller to keep them down so it’s easier for me, and they help with any heavy digging.
“If they have any plants going spare they give them to me.”
