Real Futures: Clearing up Canarvon Cemetery

Canarvon Pioneer Cemetery was founded in 1880 and closed in 1973 although officially the last person to be buried there was in 1980. The Cemetery has become overgrown, and a bit uncared for. So, the Real Futures team was delighted to get our tools our and muck in to tidy the place up, and show our respect or those who have passed. Many of the team had relatives buried here, and Real Futures is proud to have this as one of our projects.
