Cemetery gates receive strong reviews

A new fence has been completed at the Greenwood Cemetery.

A new fence has now gone in at the Greenwood Cemetery and is receiving positive reviews from residents on Mayor Nipper Kettle’s Facebook page.

It was a year ago on August 29 that a heavy windstorm roared through the Boundary blowing down trees. The fence in front of the Greenwood Cemetery was destroyed and some grave markers displaced when pine trees along the south fence line were blown over.

A new fence has now gone in and is receiving positive reviews from residents on Mayor Nipper Kettle’s Facebook page.

“Wow, looks fantastic!”

“Looks very nice. Good work.”

“Looks awesome.”

“Wow, spectacular.”

“Big improvement!”

“Very classy. Nice job, Greenwood!”

“It is a huge improvement and grass cutting etc. should not be a problem its above the ground in most places,” wrote Kettle.

Former city councillor and heritage buff Christopher Stevenson wrote, “Nice heritage look to it – big improvement……..I like it. Should last a long, long time.”

“The main gate is what we have for now,” wrote Kettle. “But we will be addressing the overhead sign which will say Greenwood Cemetery over the winter and I hope we can get done in the spring.”
