Back the Farsley Rehoboth groundwork Spring campaign

Sun 25 Apr 13:00 pm
Rehoboth Cemetery , Farsley , Leeds, LS28 5NA
Help with the Rehoboth graveyard restoration

The neglected Rehoboth grave yard on Farsley’s Coal Hill Lane is now getting the makeover it deserves. GoodGym have been asked to help with the Rehoboth graveyard restoration.

The Rehoboth team meet regularly, but are always in need of extra hands - and this is where we come in. The tasks that we will be getting involved with on Sunday, will depend on what is being done by the rest of the Rehoboth team, but will be manual tasks such as rebuilding walls, moving materials or gardening.

This community mission will be led by the Farsley Rehoboth team - and may not have a GoodGym leader on site. On arrival, find a member of the Rehoboth workforce to get started. They know GoodGym are coming!

You can find out more about the Rehoboth on their Twitter page: https://twitter.com/FarsleyOf or read this article: https://westleedsdispatch.com/community-spirit-is-key-to-progress-at-farsley-rehoboth-burial-ground/

The Farsley Baptist Rehoboth Burial Ground is located on the junction of Coal Hill Lane/Bagley Lane, Farsley, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS28 5NA

Let's get ready to rubble

Sun 28 Mar
Report written by Carol Carney

Five goodgymmers Liam, Rob , Carol ,Damu and Jennyarrived at Rehoboth Cemetry to lend a hand at clearing, cleaning and cutting shrubs, weeds and rubble away to make a new path and to help build the boundary walls.

Upon arrival we were greeted by John who gave us an overview of the history of the site, the work that has been carried out since we last visited and a safety briefing. We were impressed by the amount of progress that has been made in a short space of time

Damu , Jenny and Carol set to work removing ivy, branches and debris from the path to make it accessible. We stumbled across an army of ants and slugs under a plastic sheet which stopped us in our tracks for a moment. Adam took the lead of clearing branches and leaves leading up to the ancient toilet chamber! A wooden green shed that once was used as a toilet but looked very similar to shek’s swamp shack.

Meanwhile Liam, and Rob ,were tasked with helping to build the stone wall around the perimeter of the cemetery. This involved looking for rocks and rubble to fit between the stones to reinforce the structure of the wall. They shared a pleasant conversation with Robin one of the static volunteers at Rohoboth who had been there since 9am this morning building the wall. Robin mentioned they were down to ‘skeleton staffing’ today… haha.

By the end of the 2 hours we had accomplished quite a lot and the path was more recognisable as a path and the wall was looking mighty strong and steady!

You can stay up-to-date with the project by following Friends at Farsley Rehoboth on facebook and twitter where they post news and the latest developments.
