Holbeach cemetery chapels

Picture this competition at Holbeach cemetery

The latest venture by Holbeach Cemetery Chapels Trust to engage the local community in discovering and exploring an important heritage site is a photography competition.

The theme is “Holbeach Cemetery – the chapels and their environment” and entry is free.

There are three age groups – 5-11 years; 12-17 years; 18 years and over.
The winner of each category will receive a 24in x 16in (or nearest equivalent) canvas wrap of their winning image, among other prizes.

Everyone who enters will be awarded a certificate and the opportunity to have their work displayed on Saturday, April 22, the next open day at the chapels.

A spokesman for the trust said: “Having been awarded significant funding from Heritage Lottery, the trustees are determined to offer as wide a range of activities as possible.
“All age groups are catered for, from cemetery trails to workshops; exhibitions and even a concert on Midsummer Day; and opportunities to volunteer with the Graveyard Research Group or the textile project led by Fiona Gurney.”
