Postponement of all tours and events

Written by admin. Posted in General

In ensuring that we minimise the impact of COVID-19, we have made a considered decision to postpone all tours and events held at Brighton Cemetery until further notice. This will include our Anzac Day and Law Week Walks along with the Flag Raising Commemoration and the placing of a Plaque for Leah Rosenthal.

We are hoping that the AGM in August will be going ahead along with the walks for October and November.

As we know more we will add to this posting.

In the meantime keep safe and look after each other
