On Wednesday, 20th August the stonemason’s removed the Caroline Chisholm grave to their workshop. It is estimated that the refurbishment will take about twelve weeks.

Temorary Stone DSC00660Meantime the fund raising continues. Donations from Australia have started the ball rolling and it is hoped that the people of Northampton, the town of Caroline’s birth and early life, will help us reach the target of £1,250 to £2,000. The larger amount is given in case anything untoward is found now that the stonemasons are able to look further at the crack at the top of the cross. It is hoped that will be able to mend it securely, but if they are unable to do so, the cross may have to be replaced.
