Eling Cemetery Update


I have just heard from officers at New Forest District Council. They have confirmed that the cemetery will receive it’s fourth cut this year, starting today.

I do sympathise with those who say the don’t mind the long grass and enjoy the wildflowers.

Opinions on this differ.

Some like it tidy and think it disgraceful that it is ever allowed to look unkempt.

I suppose this is an example of managing a public facility where it is simply not possible to please everybody.

    Don’t cut it now! Let the wild flowers set seed and then mow it. manage it as a wild life reserve, like Southampton Common cemetery.
