Covers helps local church tidy memorial graves

Published: 1 April 2019 - Kiran Grewal

Covers Timber and Builders Merchants in Bognor Regis has helped St Mary’s Church in Felpham to tidy its war memorial graves.

The company, which is based in Station Yard, donated three bulk bags of topsoil, which was used to help neaten the site and prepare the ground for reseeding.

Reverend John Challis, from St Mary’s, said: “We at St Mary’s are humbled by the generosity of Covers. War graves are important and much respected sites of remembrance. St Mary’s has 22 war graves from the First and Second World Wars to care for. We are so grateful to our volunteers - in particular Jim Delaney, David Bidwell and Graham Matthews. They clean, maintain and manage these places with much dedication and love. Many people incorrectly assume they have to travel to mainland Europe to pay their respects to those who gave their all for our freedom, but they don’t. With the wonderful and generous donation from Covers we will be able to bring the state of the graves that we look after in Felpham to the highest standard.”

Paul Allwright, depot manager at Covers Bognor Regis, said: “We were honoured to be part of rejuvenating such significant sites at St Mary’s. Maintaining the memorials is hugely important and we were pleased to help in any way we could.”
