   Banwell Cemetery - Distress to Abbey Wall    27 October, 2015

Banwell Parish Council owns and manages the Cemetery adjacent to St. Andrews Church in Banwell.  The wall on the south side of the Cemetery, known as the Abbey Wall, is suffering distress and is in danger of collapsing.  In 2013, after taking legal advice, the area adjacent to the wall was temporarily cordoned off for Health and Safety reasons and a permanent resolution is actively being sought to address this problem, which will be implemented in due course.  The Parish Council has been proactive in trying to contact the relatives of the people whose ashes are interred next to the Abbey Wall. Contact has been made with the majority of these relatives, but some remain unidentified.  The Parish Council apologises for any distress or inconvenience that this may be causing to those connected with the Cemetery.
