Corop residents have been given the go-ahead to place poppy tiles on veterans’ graves.
Previously individual requests for any changes to be made to grave sites had to be approved by the Corop Cemetery Trust.
The trust saw the benefits in allowing the tiles to be placed on grave sites without formal permission.
