Ceme­tery in sad state

Chinchilla News - - NEWS OPINION -

ON A RE­CENT visit to Chin­chilla Lawn Ceme­tery to pay our re­spects to de­parted loved ones, we were quite up­set to see the state of the ceme­tery.

There is clover ev­ery­where with the prick­les on it, holes in the ground that make it very hard to walk.

In fact my 91-year-old mother-in-law ac­tu­ally fell over try­ing to walk around to look for friends’ and rel­a­tives’ graves. I nearly fell over my­self try­ing to help my mother-in-law.

There are an­i­mal drop­pings ev­ery­where too. The whole place looked messy. We have never seen it look that bad.

We were very dis­ap­pointed at the state of the place.

I hope that this let­ter will en­cour­age the coun­cil to clean it up and fill in the holes, and level the ground out, so no one else falls over out there. — Con­cerned cit­i­zen
