The safety Testing of all the gravestones and memorials in our churchyard was completed several weeks ago. Sixty memorials failed the required safety tests indicating that they were a potential safety hazard to persons in their vicinity. As part of their work, the specialist contractors carrying out the tests took immediate action to make sure these memorials were no longer a hazard.
The PCC is now reviewing what action to take to make permanent repairs to the affected memorials. This includes contacting persons with an interest in these memorials where they can be identified and obtaining quotations for repairs by specialists. It is hoped that this will lead to the memorials being made safe on a long-term basis.
