We want to acknowledge the tremendous skill and hard work done by Steven English (cemetery operations manager) and his colleagues who maintain the award winning, St. Andrews Cemetery, Hexham.

We often attend the graves of various family members interred at Hexham, but during this past year we have found ourselves spending many days having fairly regular walks along the West Road and breaking the journey with a visit into the cemetery.

The grounds are immaculate, with beautiful flower displays, neatly cut grass, all this happens no matter what the season, especially testing with the fall of leaves from all the beautiful trees within the grounds.

Thank you to the groundsmen, for their work in maintaining our cemetery (along with all the other sites they maintain), and for keeping this peaceful beautiful place in such wonderful condition.
