The problem of sand on the A60 was reported on Sunday 9 February 2014
to Nottinghamshire County Council.

I have added the photo tonight.

Just got this from: Sally A Curtis (Mrs), Director & Registrar, Mansfield & District Crematorium

Dear Andrew

I write in response to your comments concerning Warsop Cemetery and the recent unprecedented amount of rain which has unfortunately washed a lot of sand down from the adjacent farmer’s fields into the cemetery, totally bypassing the French drain that exists and regrettably catching us totally off guard.

Whilst we do appreciate that this is distressing, we are and have been trying to deal with some of the sand and have had the sweeper in to move that that was washed down Cuckney Hill and also along some of the drives, balancing this with also undertaking funerals which have to take priority above all else, as I am sure you will understand.

We have looked at the area in question and feel that it would only add to the problem to try and remove much more of the sand so therefore we will look at re-seeding the entire area and ensuring that the area where we have graves in existence is dealt with first. We are also looking at the farmer’s/cemetery boundary to see if we can create some form of barrier which hopefully will prevent this happening again.

Hoping the above addresses some of your concerns and should you wish to discuss this matter further please do not hesitate to contact me at the office below.

Kind regards

Sally
