In Helen Grant's latest newsletter she has commented that progress has been slightly slower this year, and that volunteers are welcome. If interested, contact details are available at the site. Progress is nevertheless remarkable, with only six graveyards left in Fife, for example, to be photographed. Helen and team will also be at the SAFHS conference in Dundee next month.
