Market Weighton Mayor – Cemetery Closure Insensitivity

Cllr Peter Hemmerman not only conducts affairs outwith legislation, as was seen by the closing of the Market Weighton Cemetery just before Easter, he also displays gross insensitivity in the process.

On his Cllr Peter Hemmerman Facebook page (click on the link to read) on April 5 he stated:

“I am grateful that I am lucky enough to have the space to breathe.”

Then on April 6 he falsely informed residents that:

“Following restrictions imposed by the Government it has become necessary for the Town Council to close the Cemetery on Holme Road to visitors.”

Despite the closing of the cemetery been in breach of legislation the insensitive posts remain over a month later.

I politely suggest that Cllr Hemmerman revisits his conduct.
