Spalding business restore benches for town cemetery
Seating at a cemetery has been given a makeover thanks to the work of a local businessman.
Derek Richardson, who is a director with Andrews & Co in Little London, Spalding, was able to repair and restore six benches at the town’s cemetery.
Mr Richardson had been asked by volunteers from the group to look at a number of benches at the Pinchbeck Road grave yard.
He said: “We stripped the benches back and it was surprising how much good timber was there.
“There was very little rotten timber.
“We have been around here as a business for more than 70 years and we like to help the local community where we can.”
Mr Richardson has also painted the benches blue with permission from the Friends.
