The Town Mayor stated ‘this years standard was so high that we had to choose two designs, one by Amber and one by Lily-May.

Falmouth Town council having declared a climate emergency, have been looking at simple ways to begin implementing small changes to the way we do things in our community. Some of these projects, will take a little longer to make them sustainable and we are certain will be well received, but some we can implement immediately.
One of those is our Terracycle crisp packet recycling scheme.
Falmouth Town Council is responsible for the maintenance of Falmouth Cemetery including the upkeep of all grassed areas, walls, paths & buildings. It is the responsibility of the next of kin to ensure that memorials are kept in good order and that mowers and machinery are not obstructed by incorrectly positioned flower containers and other tributes. With this in mind, the Council has regulations to keep the burial grounds in a clean and well-ordered condition – the best mark of respect.
