Less houses and more fields, please

My dad is buried in Battle Cemetery, what a lovely and well kept cemetery we have in Battle. Dad died in 1997, the cemetery is nearly full. There is still a lot of ground not used behind the cemetery. Surely the Town Council owes it to the people of Battle to extend the cemetery so everybody can have a place to be buried.

When I was at Battle and Langton school, we used to play football on the football pitch at the back of the school. The football pitch is now all houses. Is it time we stopped building houses and looked after this great countryside we call Battle.
