Mary Tavy Cemetery: Wreaths, pots and flowers for the Christmas period

The Parish Council recognises that at Christmas, thoughts turn to friends and relatives, including those who are no longer with us.

It is understandable that people may wish to place additional wreaths, pots and flowers on graves over the Christmas period but please would you ensure that they are removed or confined to the area within 12 inches of the front of the headstone after Sunday 16th January 2022. This is to allow our groundsman to cut the grass.

We appreciate that in previous years it has been necessary to move wreaths and flowers to allow the grass to be cut and that this has sometimes been upsetting. We are keen to avoid any distress by making the above request.
