I refer to the article regarding the church extension over graves in Hanwell in the Gazette of Friday, January 2 (Church under fire over its plan to build classroom on graves').

Surely it is not beyond the wit of all concerned to realise that people would be offended by what could be called 'desecration of burial site', and that any alternative would cause less opposition?

I suggest that this classroom come creche be built on stilts sufficiently high to allow adequate headroom for people wishing to visit the aforesaid graves and thus removing any possibility of increasing the current furore regarding this matter.

It would be built strongly for safety and endurance so that if 'temporary' becomes longer than anticipated it will remain safe for as long as it is needed and will be easier to dismantle when it has served its purpose.

The children won't be disabled, so access by a stairway should be adequate.
