The Town Council has noted the recent debate on Facebook about removal of glass objects from graves, and whilst accepting that notices on the matter could have been more sensitively worded, we would point out that the cemetery does operate according to published rules, including one against free-standing vases and the like.  To strim the grass close to graves as people expect, and to do so without risk of injury to our staff or members of the public, we do have to ask people to obey this particular rule.

The Council will not respond to comments attached to postings on Facebook.  If you wish to contact the Council please do so by calling the Town Clerk on 01531 820638, email townclerk@newenttowncouncil.gov.uk or through any of the councillors (who are listed on our website).
