Friends groups at GMCT cemeteries have been busy participating in a range of activities this month. 

To celebrate National Volunteers Week, a volunteer morning tea was held at Northern Memorial Park’s Commemoration Function Centre (pictured below). Trust member and chair of GMCT’s community advisory committee Liz Beattie attended and addressed the crowd.

In attendance were at the event were members of a range of GMCT’s volunteer groups, including Friends with Angels and Friends of the Garden of Angels.

Friends With Angels - a group of friends of the La Trobe section at Northern Memorial Park, also recently held a clean up day supported by GMCT to collect old flowers, oil containers and candles.

Many other GMCT cemeteries also have friends groups welcoming interested members of the community.

The Williamstown Cemetery friends group was launched recently. Read more about the launch here.

Friends of Coburg Cemetery runs events throughout the year, including the Remarkable Women Walk to be held on 19 June 2016.
