Safety check of memorials in the Church yard

The Parish Council is responsible for the safety of headstones and memorials within the grounds of St. Mary's church yard. As there has been no burials for over 100 years most of the headstones are well established and in a safe condition.

During August the Parish Council will be undertaking safety testing of the memorials to ensure that the church yard is safe for all users. If any are found to be unsafe for whatever reason efforts will be made to contact family members to undertake any adjustments that are needed. If they are found to be unsafe and a hazard to public safety at the time of inspection they will be made safe by laying them down
