After much toing and froing with Surrey County Council (SCC) and Tandridge District Council (TDC) we have managed to have the kerbing in the layby repaired, although it only lasted 3 weeks before being damaged by HGV’s again! The waste bins on the grass of the layby appear to be used as general waste disposal by many people. TDC has installed new waste bins with lids to replace those in situ in an effort to keep the area tidy.
We have also applied to SCC to have the parking restrictions at the layby altered to prohibit the parking of vehicles over 5 Tonnes at any time. This will be reviewed at the Local Committee annual meeting in November.
The Cemetery elicits many responses from visitors. Most are complimentary on the improvements made and the appearance of the cemetery.
The Councillors and staff who make up the Nutfield Burial Board are acting in the best interests of Parishioners and users of the Cemetery. We hope our continued improvement will make the cemetery a tranquil place for everyone to reflect on.
If you are interested in purchasing a plot, there is a generous discount for Nutfield Parish residents not seen at other cemetery’s, please contact the Assistant Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07722465344.
