Some weeks ago during June a memorial headstone in the Lawn Cemetery was vandalised by having white paint thrown over it. Fortunately before the paint could set, during a rainy spell, the Chairman arranged for a local firm to clean off the stone together with an adjacent stone which had got splashed with paint. The firm involved gratefully did the work free of charge.
However, the same memorial has been vandalised again by having two large chips of stone broken off from the headstone which must have been done with a hammer or similar tool.
The family have reported the incident to the Police but are asking passers by if they can keep their eyes pealed for any unusual activity in the cemetery.

At the last meeting of the Parish Council a Notice of Motion was proposed, seconded and agreed unanimously that the Council places on record its thanks to Alderman Christina Jebb for her service as a County Councillor for 24 years and District Councillor for 30 years. During this time she has attended almost all of the Parish Council's meetings and represented our community with distinction.We wish her well for the future having taken the decision not to stand as District Councillor.

The trees and shrubs planted in the Cemetery as a screen to replace the very large conifer trees which have been removed are now complete. The work was carried out by tender with Ash Green Farm Growers Ltd of Brown Edge in the sum of £1,049.50 excl. V.A.T.

However, a family of a recently deceased gentleman offered to donate the cost of the planting and has forwarded a payment of £1,050.00 to the Council. This was obviously accepted with grateful thanks from the Council.

The family asked if a small plaque could be erected to acknowledge the kind donation.

A photograph of the accepted design is shown below. This also shows details of all the family connections.
