Stafford Cemetery Access Road

Cemetery access improved

Stafford Cemetery access road apparently initially led to a sports field at the rear of the cemetery. The sports field fell out of use as the population declined and is now overgrown.

The bitumen sealed road has also been subject to climate and vegetation damage with a thick layer of dirt and grass covering the surface making access difficult in wet weather. The growth of the large Japanese Cedar at the gate also added a dangerous camber to the road.
Thanks to Lions President Peter Nancekivell, the access has been improved and should now allow access in all weather allowing less-abled visitors to visit graves.
