Community service workers clean cemetery

COMMUNIty service workers are cleaning up Nuthall cemetery.

The ex-offenders have been laying new paths and updating old graves in the New Farm Lane cemetery since November last year.

Nuthall Parish Council clerk Sue Stack said the group should be done in the next month, and they will then move on to the Basil Russell playing field.

She said: ““We are very impressed with their commitment, attitude and hard work.”

‘Community Payback’ is a punishment for offenders which involves work to benefit the community such as transforming ‘grot spots’ or painting and decorating public buildings.

Last year offenders completed approximately 272,366 hours of work in Nottinghamshire. The scheme is run by Nottinghamshire Probation Trust.
