Kirby Cross: Flower thief destroys cemetery display
9:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in News
RESIDENTS have blasted a flower thief who repeatedly rips the floral displays out of planters by the gates of Kirby Cross cemetery.
The flower boxes are set up on each side of the Holland Road cemetery’s gates.
Kind-hearted volunteers fill them with colourful floral displays twice a year, but the flowers are always ripped from the soil by callous crooks soon afterwards.
Ray Enever from Kirby Residents Association labelled the people responsible “despicable”.
He said: “We just want to make the place look nice, as cemeteries are often difficult places for people to go to.
“A cemetery is a place for respect and mourning and for people to come along and take advantage like this, it is despicable.”
