As part of our project we went to the Town Hall to show our respect to the soldiers who died in World War One, World War Two and over 70 other conflicts across the world.  We watched as Mayor Alift Harewood addressed the crowd.

Cleaning the War Graves at Macclesfield Cemetery

Cleaning the War Graves at Macclesfield Cemetery 1

On Saturday 4th November we all met up at the Cemetery with our scrubbing brushes, buckets and gloves to wash the seventeen gravestones that we are responsible for. It didn't take too long as 'many hands make light work'!

We scrubbed the stones just using water and pulled out any weeds that were growing around the stone too.
