Residents stage protest at Dovecot

August 08, 2022

 Residents from neighboring communities to the Dovecot Memorial Park this morning protested at the gate of the expanded section.

The residents say the operators of Dovecot Memorial Gardens have ignored their pleas and have allegedly started to bury bodies on the 50-acre property that is currently being expanded.

The residents have long feared the risk of contamination of their water supply because of the vulnerability of aquifers.

They are calling for the intervention of the authorities including Member of Parliament for the area, and Minister of Health Dr Christopher Tufton.
