Lucy Hingley Grave
Lucy Hingley started the WI in Salwarpe and was Worcestershire County Chairman from 1920-1931. She died in 1942 and she and 5 other members of her family are buried in Salwarpe Churchyard. The graves had become very overgrown, so at Salwarpe WI’s instigation, WFWI has paid to have them cleared. We at Salwarpe WI have paid for (and Committee members have put in place) 20 bags of new stones to cover the 6 graves.
Update : Sadly weeds have returned and there is now a molehill problem, so further action will be required.
