Children in the Churchyard

 

Dear Parents

 

I have received a number of complaints recently from families who tend graves in the church yard about children running across graves and, in some instances, picking up flowers from the graves.

 

I am sure you would all agree with me that this is unacceptable and the correct thing for parents to do is to teach the children about respect for those who have been laid to rest in the church yard.

 

Could I therefore ask parents to reinforce this message at home and, if you do walk home that way, please make sure your children stay to the paths.
