Floral Tributes

Those wishing to leave floral tributes are asked to do so in the area around the War Memorial adjacent to Appleton Gate (at the rear of St Mary’s Church).

All floral tributes will be collected the day after the funeral and will be composted. We therefore ask that no plastic wrappers are included to allow for ease of composting.
