This Day in History: 1993-10-24

The Toodyay Society held a Cemeteries Awareness Day, with Society members based at the Toodyay, Nardie and Culham Cemeteries on the day. The event was instigated to give advice and assistance in the preservation and restoration of the older graves and to tidy the cemetery areas. Many visitors and students came, with the main questions being how to clean mouldy headstones and raise sunken graves.
