Plumes. Cemeteries ready to welcome families on All Saints Day

The municipal team responsible for the two cemeteries in Plœmeur (Morbihan) mobilized as the All Saints weekend approaches to allow families to spend a moment of meditation in the best conditions. Under the direction of Frédéric Mesquita, cemetery team leader in the department of green areas, four municipal agents (gardeners and caretakers) work there year-round.

They mainly take care of the maintenance and beautification of the premises. In the central city cemetery, weeds were weeded without plant health product and the paths were manually sanded. The yews were also pruned. Chrysanthemums from the Etablissement et service d’aide par le travail (ESAT) in Kerlir were planted at the level of the military square, but also at the level of the Louis Lessard stele and the war memorial.

€57,000 for work on the Cornouaille cemetery

As for the landscaped cemetery of Cornouaille, it includes several vineyard rooms: a columbarium, caves, vaults and a memorial garden for the scattering of ashes.

Every year the city carries out extension works there. In 2022, a new sector was developed for an amount of €57,000. The site was entrusted to the companies Pigeon Bretagne Sud and Atlantic Paysage, allowing the installation of eleven vaults in two places and four vaults in four places, the creation of paths and the extension of the rainwater drainage network.

Use of rainwater

The drought decree is still in effect, the water inlets are cut off. The city has invested in rainwater collectors, connected to the gutters of municipal buildings to allow families to clean graves and water flowers.

On the city’s website, a new tab is now dedicated to cemeteries. Among other things, this facilitates the search for the location of the deceased’s graves seven days a week and 24 hours a day, via computer, tablet or smartphone. Municipal information and rates are also available online. Finally, it also facilitates the renewal of expired concessions as well as contact with families.

Opening every day, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., for the two cemeteries;
