    On the front cover of this month's magazine is a picture of the recently constructed and installed entrance gates to the new burial ground leading from St Mary's churchyard to 'Whitehead Fields'.

    Construction is now complete and plans are underway for its consecration in readiness to accept burials. The gates have been manufactured and installed with great care and craftsmanship by Tom Starkey who has in the past completed other valued work for St Mary's.

    The whole project has been made possible due to the kind donation of land by Irving and Mary Whitehead and local contractors and craftsmen have been employed throughout the construction process.
