Cemetery In a mess still

Walked over the cemetery again today to check on the initial complaint. Came away even more dejected than ever. The staff have used a leaf blower and have blown the leaves into a pile and left them there ON PEOPLES GRAVES ! The bins haven’t been emptied inside the gate and flower memorials have been beside the bin for DAYS. The large wheelie bins are empty so it’s not that they don’t have anywhere for the leaves. Quite frankly, the staff are not doing their jobs with the same respect that the old staff used to. The difference between the condition at ashford burial ground and the cemetery on the London road is unbelievable and it’s all down to the attitudes of the workers. This really can’t carry on because the cemetery will be in a state of disrepair within weeks.
