Community Cleanup of St. Luke's Churchyard

St. Luke’s Churchyard is one of Victoria’s earliest church burial grounds and the final resting place of many Cedar Hill, Lake Hill, and Gordon Head pioneers as well as others who settled in the area.

As an old cemetery (the first recorded interment was in 1886, although there were likely unrecorded burials), it takes a lot of work to keep it tidy and well cared for.

We are asking for volunteers from the community to come and help with the cleanup. Please join us for as much or as little time as you can. Even if you can just come for part of the morning, your help will be greatly appreciated.

If you have tools, please bring them along but extra tools are also available. Lots of ways to help from cleaning headstones to weeding and cleaning graves. If you have them, please bring your gloves, pruners, clippers, hoes, and scrapers. Water is available for cleaning monumental markers, but bring your own bucket and scrub brush please.

Light refreshments will be served.

Please join us as we work together to weed and tidy St. Luke’s historic churchyard.
