We have started a new group called Friends of the Cemeteries.

The Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo has given us approval.
The aim of this group is to take care of the graves, initially in Johannesburg’s oldest and therefore heritage cemeteries, Braamfontein and Brixton.

We need involvement on several levels:
People who are as passionate as we are about our heritage, to join work parties to clean headstones, cut back invasive vegetation and repair or lay flat, damaged or fallen headstones. People/Corporates/Businesses who will sponsor us.  We do not expect huge expenses as no-one is being paid to do this work, except for the security guards whom we will pay to protect us as we work.  We will however need extra-long hosepipes, cleaning materials, large water containers with a pump attachment, etc.
Links to organizations such as the Monumental Masons, that can offer us assistance with the tackle we may need to lift fallen headstones, etc.
Possible links to the media, so they can come along to some of our work parties and publicize what we are doing

To join send your name to Sarah Welham and ask for an application form.
