A Harpenden Facebook group has so far raised £400 for a stonemason who repaired a number of damaged graves for free.

Old Harpenden, Years Gone By wanted to thank Memorial Makeovers’ Anthony Knox after he fixed 10 vandalised memorials at Westfield Road cemetery.

Group administrator Paul Lakatos said: “When the story broke about the vandalised gravestones there was a massive response from the group, as a lot of the members have family up at Westfield Cemetery.

“So it was great news when the stonemason stepped up and repaired the gravestones for free. Acts of kindness like that don’t happen too often in the world.

“With that in mind, I posted up in the group about maybe collecting a few quid for him to say thank you from us. At the very least it would give him a decent Christmas present.”
