Foster Hill Road Cemetery Event Details

The Friends of Foster Hill Road Cemetery host a number of themed talks during the year, which are open to the public and always prove very popular.  The Cemetery records are available at the Chapel during the Heritage Weekend in September and an annual carol concert is held near Christmas.  Other events are held to mark special occasions.

Members of the Friends lead several guided walks during the summer months. Each walk is themed and covers topics such as the Cemetery’s spectacular graves, its history, its wildlife, tales of those buried there and more.  Walks are also included during the Heritage weekend.  The walks last approximately 1.5 hours and the pace is gentle.  However, the cemetery grounds are uneven so a pair of stout walking shoes is recommended.

We are also happy to arrange bespoke walks for interested groups, please contact us for details.

The times and dates of our events vary, so please see our events calendar for more details.

Black Tom Jumble Trail

The Black Tom Jumble Trail is back!

What is a Jumble Trail? It’s a community-wide event, a day of jumble stalls at people’s homes all around the Black Tom area. It’s a great opportunity to have a Spring Clean and make some money selling preloved items, home made produce, art & crafts, plants… Or if you’re a bargain hunter, to hit the trail and track down a bargain or two.

The Friends will be having a stall  outside the Gatehouse at the top of Foster Hill Road. We will be selling a range of bric-a-brac so come along and grab a bargain. All proceeds will go to help preserve our beautiful Victorian Cemetery.
