Have your say

A family has complained after flowers bought for a family grave in Epworth were ruined by gardening contractors.

Belton man David Maxfield is appalled that cut grass was flung over Mothers’ Day flowers placed in St Andrew’s Churchyard, to cover headstones and most of the graves themselves.

The 44-year-old said: “We have always maintained my mother’s grave in the churchyard and kept it nice. But this week whoever had cut the grass had done it with no care at all. New flowers were ruined and everything was covered in grass. My father, who is in his seventies, went to visit my mother’s grave and came back quite upset.
