    14. 14. Decalogue Conservation in Temple Guiting Church St Mary’s PCC co-ordinated the efforts of 12 volunteers and 2 professional conservators to rescue, restore and reinstate an elaborately carved and gilded altar piece (Decalogue) which dated from around 1750 and had lain hidden for 120 years. The project produced a teaching pack prepared for the local school by a team of local historians; provided opportunities for the school children and the general public to visit the work in progress; and a short film about the project. The PCC will now run an annual competition for pupils at the school for the best church related study.

    15. 15. Ford Park Cemetery Discovery Trail Ford Park Cemetery is a 35 acre site in Central Plymouth created in 1848 and now under the management of the Ford Park Cemetery Trust, which is run by volunteers. The project is being co-ordinated by Plymouth Area Groundwork Trust, who worked with the volunteers to involve local school children and community members in researching, developing and installing a Discovery Trail.
