Discuss Aldershot Military Cemetery in Charities and Welfare on The Army Rumour Service; if after the shot show this weekend things at the cemetry look like they're getting bad again, take it to The Sun.

if after the shot show this weekend things at the cemetry look like they're getting bad again, take it to The Sun. It's disgusting (sub)contracters aren't doing their job. Intervention is needed, take it away from them and perhaps make it a "duty" of the local squadrons to keep the place in order.
Well done to those who spoke up about this, let's hope its not just the shot show making them pay attention to the area.
I've been away for the last week & Aspire, owned by Carillion, KBR and HSBC, have been busy indeed.
I did a tour of inspection yesterday afternoon of the complete cemetery and am quite happy with the state of the place, save for a bit of litter being blown around. That could have been from the road though.
The one thing that worries me is that this company will think that it's now ok to take things easy again.............Wrong!
I hear that they are going to put 3 gardeners in for 1 day a week, to keep the place up to standard.
At first glance, you might say, that sounds ok........ Not so!
Excuse me, but what was wrong with having the 1 resident gardener/caretaker there for 5 days a week. Someone who was there All the time ensuring that things were top notch & if there was a problem would get it sorted ASP.
Can't see 3 gardeners for 1 day a week, carrying out those functions. They'll probably only be there for an hour or so, leaving the cemetery unmanned for the rest of the time.
