The asweide cemetery Heimolen in Sint-Niklaas is the coming year, systematically renewed and rejuvenated. The grasslands are to be re-sown. “Because there are already many years of axes to be scattered, is the grass currently of poor quality. It is important for relatives that they go to a place that is beautiful, clean and green beaches. A cemetery that stale look, is not fine. Then it is but logical that we will also have gardening to follow,” says vessels for Cemeteries Sofie Heyrman (Green).
For sp.a city council member, Gaspard Van Peteghem, this does not happen with the necessary respect. “There is outrage. Families have just their loved ones, " and are now faced with a reconstruction of the asweide. Allegedly they asweide omploegen to re-sowing. That you do not. There are other ways to the grass in an optimum condition. This is disrespectful,” says Van Peteghem, that this point is also on the agenda of the city council of Friday.
