Christmas trees The Town Council will once again be providing 4 Christmas trees for the residents of Hornsea to enjoy. They will be situated in St Nicholas Church gardens, Willows Corner in Newbegin, at Eastgate Crossroads and on the Greenway.All the trees will be in place in time for Lights Night on 24th November. Tree Survey Hornsea Town Council recently commissioned a survey of all trees on land in its ownership. A comprehensive report has now been received which outlines necessary work to be carried out to trees around the town by either our own staff or contractors. A total of 879 trees have been inspected and plotted on to maps and work has been prioritised based on the condition of the tree – scope of work ranges from felling to ivy removal. Budget 2018/2019 The Town Council will hold its budget meeting on Monday 11th December 2017 at 7.30 pm at the Town Hall when the precept for 2018/2019 will be set. As with other Town Council meetings the press and public are welcome to attend. Edenfield Cemetery Hornsea Town Council is obtaining quotations to extend the road way at the Edenfield cemetery. As the burial area expands visitors to the cemetery are needing to walk further over grass to tend burial plots – this is particularly problematic during winter months when grassed areas become wet and muddy. Extending the roadway would provide additional car parking and result in easier access for pedestrians and motor vehicles.
