BAMPTON PARISH COUNCIL
Bampton Parish Council Cemetery Hedging
Bampton Parish Council has recently purchased some land adjoining the Cemetery for the purpose of extending it, as space in the existing part of the Cemetery is becoming limited.
The Council have decided to surround this land with hedging and trees.
We would like to give Bampton residents and friends the chance to dedicate part of the hedge which will be made up of trees and shrubs kindly donated by the Woodlands Trust, to a departed loved one. This will become a memorial hedge.
The names of those dedications will be displayed on a plaque at the entrance of the Cemetery. Family and friends are welcome to come and plant a tree or shrub personally and the event will be held in November (date to be confirmed on posters and social media).
If you would to be part of the event you can either email
or write details required in a letter which can be put in an envelope marked “Cemetery” and post it through the Town Hall letter box.
Details required for either letter or email are:
All dedication requests must please be made by 1st November 2020
Due to the Government restrictions for Covid –19 we will give each family a time for the planting and numbers that can attend nearer the time depending on Government advice. A risk assessment and protective measures will be in place for this event to protect attendees.
Mercury Close playpark will be open from Tuesday 8th September from 9am-5pm daily, see attached poster for information and regulations.
