Cemetery extension

 

No, not the Windows XP desktop image, but the field between Middle Moor Drove and the reservoir, part of which is going to shortly become an extension to the cemetery. The gravediggers were on site when I took this photo and I had a chat, “it’s filling up fast!” one of them said, so the extension won’t come a moment too soon, and it will be good to see and comment on the new landscaping plans which are currently being worked up. These will include a new access road and car park tarmac, and the possibility of an area for green burials. The Highways and Open Spaces committee also recently learned that spacing between graves is going to have to be increased… because we’re all getting that little bit bigger 😮 … the things you learn as a parish councillor!
