SIGNS that spring is fast approaching are rife in a Wisbech cemetery packed with colour and bird song.

Clumps of snowdrops and aconites are in full bloom in the Leverington Road Cemetery, with a profusion of primroses, daffodils and bluebells still to follow.

The three-acre woodland is owned by Fenland District Council and managed by the Friends of Leverington Road Cemetery, which encourages wildlife and keeps a record of the town's history and heritage.

The cemetery is open at all times and can be accessed either from Leverington Road or via the entrance along the cycle path at the back of the Harecroft Road playing fields.

Repairs are also being carried out on the chapel by Fenland District Council to make the building safe, with grants being sought to restore some of the monuments.

Volunteers have been busy cutting back brambles, maintaining paths and removing ivy from some of the gravestones.
