Campaign to clear overgrown churchyard moves forward

Ian Austin MP and local campaigner Damian Corfield have stepped up their campaign to clear the Graveyard at the All Saints Church in Sedgley.

Graves at the church have been left to fall in to a terrible condition, some are almost impossible to get to because of extensive overgrowth.

Austin had been pushing the Council to take action after local residents got in touch complaining at the state of the area.

Austin and Corfield contacted the Dudley Youth Offending Service to enlist their help to clear the church yard.

Austin is visiting All Saints Church, Sedgley with local campaigner and council candidate Damian Corfield on Tuesday 5th April at 1:30, to meet Ann Vaughan, Reparation Co-Ordinator, Dudley Youth Offending Service

Ian Austin said:

“I think its great news that the Dudley Youth Offending Service is interested in helping do this. Not only could we get the graveyard cleaned up, but local people would be able to access the area and pay their respects at graves blocked for years by brambles.”

Local Campaigner Damian Corfield:

“I’m pleased that we are moving forward with the situation and hopefully All Saints Church yard will be a suitable and safe place where families can come to mourn their loved ones.”
