Shocked at state of Wirral cemetery

I WAS shocked and dismayed when visiting Landican Cemetery recently to find the state of the section pathways and between the graves in such a dreadful mess.

Long mown grass had been left to grow so long, then cut, leaving most of the headstones covered.

Why is the grass left to grow so long? Why is it not collected when cut?

The garden of remembrance, I noted, was neat and tidy - is this because it is near to the chapels?

Surely the same respect should be shown to the graves?

In response to the letter re. the state of the grounds at Landican. I was up there on Tuesday (17th). Whether someone there psychic, or had wind of the complaints to come, there were groundsmen cutting the knee high grass between the graves with a power strimmer. All well and good, and about time. However, the cut grass is left to die, dry out and blow, or in wet weather, stick to the gravestones. A job half done? Token gesture?

Knee-high grass? Pass on my regards to Snow White when you next see her, will you?
