Agenda item

Collection of old decorations


The Chair noted Councillor J Blakey wished to raise an issue and asked her to speak.


Councillor J Blakey thanked the Chair and noted a number of bows, ribbons and other decorations left after funeral services and that some had been blow by the wind into the nearby fields and asked what we did in terms of collecting these.  She noted that the grounds of the Crematorium itself were very tidy, the issue being in locations adjacent to the facility itself.  The Bereavement Services Manager noted he would look into the matter, including land ownership.  Councillor A Hopgood asked as regards the Joint Committee’s remit and whether it included South Road Cemetery.  The Bereavement Services Manager noted the Joint Committee had oversight for Durham Crematorium only.
