Important notice re Wysall Lane Burial Ground
A notice along the following lines has been placed on relevant plots at Wysall Lane Burial Ground:
The Parish Council has received numerous complaints about the poor state of Wysall Lane Burial Ground. We know this is a very sensitive matter, but it is and always has been a lawned Burial Ground. As such, there are regulations as to what can be put on graves. Basically, anything on or around a grave must be limited in number and confined to the plinth of the gravestone or the area of the memorial plaque in the case of cremations. So that we can restore and maintain the area to the highest standards, we respectfully ask that all unauthorised objects be removed by October 1st 2015. After this date, we shall remove all such objects and store them for your collection or instruction to dispose.
Thank you. Tony Grice, Chairman, Keyworth Parish Council
Elm Avenue/Rectory Field Sports Facilities – the way forward
The following sports facilities on and around Elm Avenue are owned freehold by the Parish Council: Rectory field, pavilion and changing rooms; tennis courts and clubhouse; bowling green and clubhouse. Prior to 2013, these facilities were leased to, and managed by, the Keyworth Playing Fields Association (KPFA) which, up to that point, received an annual maintenance grant from the Parish Council. The KPFA surrendered the lease in 2013 and, at around the same time, the Rectory field, pavilion and changing rooms ceased to be used for cricket or football.
