Harold Heys, local resident and Friend of Darwen Cemetery came to the
rescue after visitors to the Eastern Cemetery had been left without water
for two months after a pipe was broken.

The water butt was installed on the central island and the Friends of Darwen Cemetery have received many thanks from visitors for Harold’s initiative.
Thank you to Gibson’s Ironmongery who supplied the water butt and accessories at a discount price and to Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service who came to the rescue and filled up the water butt.
