Our very first working party of 2013 on
the 26th January was cancelled due to eight inches of snow that fell
All the best plans for our first working party went out the window, we were due to receive a large skip allowing us to remove many of the Rhododendron roots and branches that were dugout before Christmas, but due to the vast amount of snow that fell overnight that it made it impossible for the skip to be delivered.
Also with that amount of snow we would of found it very hard to find the roots to put in the skip.
The snow was that heavy on the trees that the shear weight had up rooted one tree between section F and section D2 at the top end of the cemetery.
As the tree fell it caught another tree breaking it in half.
