South Avenue Cemetery Memorial Audit
A recent memorial safety audit has identified 9 memorials as unstable and hence posing a risk to anybody who could be walking or working nearby.
The 9 memorials have been identified with hazard tape. Anyone having a family memorial in South Avenue Cemetery is asked to check whether it has been identified as unstable and if so, take appropriate remedial action.
There will be a review in June 2020 and any memorials that are still unstable will be laid flat.
If you have any queries please contact Helen Valler at the Parish Council office - 01273 833264

Nearly 50 acres of meadowland has now been acquired by the Parish Council, for access by the public and for preservation of the natural countryside. This is part of the Council's Neighbourhood Plan which was approved by over 90% of the community in our referendum in 2015.
The area is north of Trinity Road, west of College Lane, and east of Iden Hurst and Fairfield Crescent, with points of access currently from the Millennium Garden (Trinity Road), Highfield Drive, Latchetts Lane and St Georges Green.
Over the coming months and years we will be introducing new planting, to reinforce the indigenous species, introducing a community orchard, improving access and adding noticeboards and maps to help everyone understand and enjoy the areas.
