IF YOU want it cleaned-up, help me get the job done.
Those were the words of mother-of-three Claire Connor who is rallying the community to get Brighouse Cemetery cleaned-up.
Claire has acted after seeing the Lightcliffe Road cemetery become overgrown with weeds and litter when she visits her father’s grave.
Ahead of the third anniversary of Edward David Connor’s death in May, Claire hopes she’ll get the community’s backing to get all of the cemetery clean and tidy once again.
Plans are at an early stage and Claire is asking for interested volunteers to get in touch.
Claire said: "We all know the council doesn’t have the money to do it, and so many people say it needs cleaning up, so I’ve decided to do something about it.
"Part of the cemetery is kept nice, but the bit where the graves are is overgrown.
"I think if we can make a start on clearing the debris, cut the grass back and clear the litter it will make a big difference.
"Even if people can’t spare a lot of time, if they could come along and clean and tidy up around their loved ones grave area it will make a big difference.
"I’ve never done anything like this before and I know it’s a massive job, but after hearing so many complaints I decided it was time to do something.
