The Dangers of Playing with Fire

It was a fire that destroyed the Chapels and sadly youngsters are still playing with fire within the Cemetery.

This of course is both dangerous to the youngsters and to the Cemetery itself.

These youngsters had decided to build themselves a small ‘den’ beneath the trees within the Cemetery and decided that a fire would be a good idea.

All this after the Cemetery closed for the evening.

However, the result was that the tree caught fire.

Fortunately, one of the Committee saw the smoke rising from the Cemetery and called the Emergency Services.

The Local Police are aware of the problem with youngsters and will be keeping a watchful eye.

Vandalism is a crime – it is criminal damage to destroy property and here we have mindless damage to graves and trees.

It is not just youthful fun – it must be stopped.

You too can play your part by reporting any anti-social behaviour – the Cemetery belongs to us all and we all have a responsibility to safeguard our heritage.
