SCOUTS who have `adopted' a graveyard are planning more work this summer.
Members of the 4th Golcar Scout Group are planning two benches and repairs to the railings.
They have been working on the site at Wellhouse, Golcar, since being contacted in 2003 by a woman with a family vault.
They managed to clear a pathway in the overgrown graveyard and since then have worked tirelessly to make it tidy.
Project leader Craig Ellis has put in 100 hours of work since the early days.
Assistant Scout leader Suzanne Leach said: "Plans involve finding out about some of the people buried there and finding out about the war graves on the site.
"We also want to install two benches, build a cairn, repair the metal railings and replace the stone chippings on top of the graves."
Working on the site has helped many Scouts win their community challenge badges.
In addition to the general tidying work at the site, Beavers have planted bulbs and seeds, done grave rubbings and conducted a `mini-beasts' survey.
Cubs have made bird boxes, bat boxes and bird feeders. They also painted pots for the bulbs to go in.
Scouts have built a rockery, with path and stone stairway, planted more than 600 bluebells and snowdrops and also created a scented garden.
The Explorer Scouts have made a noticeboard and a weather station to put up at the site.
