A group of thoughtful residents dusted a cemetery in kindness when they cleaned up graves last Sunday.

The SKT Welfare Nelson volunteers also laid primroses on the graves of babies during the clean-up, which was held in Association With The Great British Spring Clean.

While the rain poured, the group spent the full day tidying up Nelson Cemetery, Walton Lane, from top to bottom.

The volunteers would like to thank Pendle Council and Coun. Mohammed Iqbal for their assistance in facilitating the clean-up, as well as Going Dutch and Morrisons for their generous donations of flowers.
