Quantock Road Cemetery & St John’s Cemetery, Bristol Road grass cutting
Our sincere apologies for the length of the grass at both sites. We have had issues with our grass cutting equipment, with our ride-on mower awaiting parts (there is a shortage of parts across the world at the moment). The grass has also been growing at a fast rate due to the weather during May.
The team have been cutting the grass with push mowers and this is labour intensive due to the number of obstructions encountered (over 20,000 memorials) and the size of the sites. Quantock Road is over 30 acres.
Our ground staff have now cut over half of Quantock Road Cemetery and this has taken nearly 2 weeks – they have funerals to manage as well.
We have contractors taking over at St John’s this week. This will enable us to keep on top of the grass at both sites until we get our equipment back.
