A Sunday league football team have been cleaning and tidying up the headstones of fallen heroes in Hemel Hempstead.

After having their games cancelled this month due to lockdown, Adey Tudors FC, based in Hemel Hempstead, decided to go out and tidy and restore headstones in the area of fallen heroes.

Kevin Hammond, the club chairman and secretary, some of the players, coaches, and family at Adey Tudors - whilst adhering to government rules - gave up their time last Sunday, to go out armed with materials to clean and restore, memorials, graves, benches, headstones and plaques at churches, cemeteries, parks and crematoriums of those heroes who gave and those who continue to give everything for us.

Kev said: "We searched the venues and at the times we would have been playing last Sunday went out and tidied them up, we will be going out again this Sunday.

"A poppy will be left with each and and every visit along with a donation being made to the Royal British Legion in their honour. We will spend time and care and be forever grateful for those who gave their today for our tomorrow. We will remember."
