HUERCAL-OVERA council has been stepping up maintenance on the municipality’s cemeteries to ensure they are looking at their very best for All Saints’ Day tomorrow Friday.
The local authority’s Public Works and Services department and Public Company has been busy cleaning, working on gardens and painting both inside and outside the cemeteries so that everything is ready for the day of the year when Spaniards traditionally remember their late loved ones.
Huercal-Overa Mayor Francisca Lourdes Fernandez and Public Works and Services councillor
Jose Lopez visited the town cemetery earlier this week to see how the works were going.
The Mayor made it clear that while the council made extra efforts on cemetery maintenance in the run up to the All Saints bank holiday, “the Public Company staff keep them in good condition all year.”
