Burials deal for parishioners

Parishioners of Alvechurch can continue to request burials in the churchyard at St Laurence’s even if they are not churchgoers, after the parish council agreed to pay towards the upkeep of the cemetery for another year.

Parish council chairman Coun John Cypher told colleagues:  “The parish council puts £500 into the upkeep of the churchyard and in return any parishioner, whether or not they are a practising Anglican, can exercise the right to be buried in the churchyard.”

The council also agreed to grant £4,000 towards the lease of The Lounge in the village centre for the next year.

Coun Cypher said: “This is an important facility in Alvechurch, a very nice piece of work by local people bringing it together. We have supported it where we can.”
