Ceme­ter­ies can be dan­ger­ous places

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

MAY I say my heart was in my mouth af­ter read­ing about your ed­i­tor John’s close es­cape with a tree, I am so pleased he is okay.

It’s quite wor­ry­ing about trees/branches fall­ing. I would like to share my ex­pe­ri­ence with your read­ers.

I re­cently went to pay my re­spects to my nana and when I got near nana’s grave I was gob­s­macked at what lay ahead. It was cor­nered

off with red and white tape, it looked like a crime scene.

A gi­gan­tic tree had fell straight onto Nanna’s and other poor peo­ple’s grave. Hor­ren­dous sight, I was so up­set. Ob­vi­ously some had al­ready been

cut off but it still was har­row­ing to see. I feel it’s about time the ceme­ter­ies out there had a tree sur­geon to check some trees as they can tell if the bark is rot­ten and get the tree dis­posed of. They are so dan­ger­ous. I am so glad I wasn’t at­tend­ing nana’s grave on the day this tree crashed down.

I wouldn’t be here to write this let­ter. I feel even though trees are pic­turesque they are very dan­ger­ous when they fall with­out warn­ing. In fu­ture when I fi­nally get this tree re­moved, when I am at­tend­ing Nanna’s grave I will keep look­ing up, keep my wits about me and al­ways be ready to run for the hills, hence the trees this is a wor­ry­ing on­go­ing bat­tle.

Be care­ful when vis­it­ing your loved ones, it’s dan­ger­ous in ceme­ter­ies.
