Appendix A

LENGTHMAN’S REPORT – APRIL 2020

 As you probably know from your own gardens this has been a very busy month cutting grass and strimming.

All areas are in good condition except for a broken gate post on the kissing gate on the London Road of the Cemetery. This has been chained up until we can get a replacement post and also a section of fencing which needs replacing.

All equipment and buildings are good with no issues.

Please keep safe and good luck with the virtual meetings.
