Cemetery theme for competition

A CEMETERY themed poetry competition is set to take place as part of a Heritage Lottery funded Secret Garden project.

The Friends of Dean Road and Manor Road Cemeteries group are seeking poems – or even raps – inspired by the cemetery, which will be judged by a trio of judges.

The group are eager for contestants of all ages to get involved.

There will separate sections for different age groups, starting with eight-years-old and under, as well as 9 to 12, 13 to 15, and 16 and over.

To enter, e-mail your entry, along with name, age and contact details to scarboroughcemeteries@gogglemail.com.

The closing date for entries is July 31.
