Yes to angels

A FAMILY has been granted permission for a headstone at White Hill burial ground in Goring despite concerns that the design went against the rules.

The parish council, which owns the amenity off Reading Road, has agreed to allow a memorial with a relief carving of an angel at either side.

The council’s rules state that carvings are permitted at the head of a stone but don’t say they can’t go anywhere else so councillors felt they had no power to refuse. The rules may now be revised to make them clearer.
