Urgent Tree Maintenance

Urgent Tree Maintenance

Due to the recent storms we have urgent tree maintenance at Kingshill Cemetery and Kingshill Play Area ongoing this morning.

We would ask all visitors to the cemetery and play area to stay away from the affected areas.

Sadly half of the large Willow tree at Kingshill Cemetery has fallen down and the remaining half will be assessed to confirm if it can be saved.
