A year ago Ross Edgett, owner of a family plot at St Andrews Cemetery, approached the Church with a proposal to create additional parking for interment services. With the extensive goodwill built whilst owner of Edgett Excavating Ltd, Mr. Edgett coordinated the efforts of the persons and companies listed to: re-establish survey bars, install a catchbasin for drainage, protect the Garry Oaks by hand-grubbing blackberry brambles in identified areas, bring pit run, crushed stone and the heavy equipment needed to widen the shoulder on McQuillan Rd and to create additional parking at St Andrews Church. Now visibility for drivers is improved, parking is available and one row of unmarked graves has been distinguished through the planting of native seeds to rejuvenate the Garry Oak meadow wildflowers. The combined value of these donations is estimated at $24,000 for which the Church, its parishioners and visitors of St Andrews Church are sincerely grateful.
