Thorne Moorends Town Council has announced further changes to the current cemetery opening hours.
Thorne Cemetery was closed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic but reopened again with reduced opening hours in April.
The town council has today announced further changes to the opening hours (Mon 22 June), saying the cemetery will now open from 12.00 noon Monday to Friday instead of the later time of 3.00pm.
The cemetery will continue to be open from 9am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The opening hours are now as follows: Monday to Friday 12.00 noon to 9.00pm; Saturday and Sunday 9.00am to 9.00pm.
A spokesperson for Thorne Moorends Town Council said: “The opening hours remain restricted due to Covid-19. We are however keeping arrangements under constant review and hope to be able to return to ordinary opening hours at the earliest opportunity.”
As previously stated by the council, the cemetery will be closed to public access at times when a funeral is taking place.
