paid homage to the dead for France at Sainte-Mère, then Ravenoville, Foucarville, Ecoquenéauville, Chef-du-Pont, and to finish Carquebut.

Cleaning of cemeteries

All the cemeteries were cleaned up before All Saints' Day.

The Ecoquenéauville cemetery has benefited from some work : municipal employees disbursed the entrance, added a geo-textile and put stones back.

Water separation at Chef-du-Pont

Since the beginning of the year, work in some streets, cause several inconveniences ( deviations, dust, noises, etc…).
The objective of this work is to separate the rainwater from the wastewater.

Health center

Two general practitioners currently in place in Sainte-Mère-Eglise, a nursing practice, a speech therapist, a psychologist, a physiotherapist, and subject to confirmation : a dentist and a general practitioner on a quarterly basis, will be present in the health center. The health center opened its doors on Monday 23 November with the 2 doctors.

Reorganizations in the town

– Parking in rue de Verdun in Sainte-Mère-Eglise has been reviewed and corrected for pedestrian safety and traffic flow. Indeed the parking which was located just in front of La Poste, obstructed the view of the pedestrian crossing. It was therefore removed and a yellow line was marked prohibiting parking at this location..

– In the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, a pedestrian crossing over the Murphy impasse has been marked to secure the exit from Notre-Dame school.

Cleaning of the Gendarmerie

A cleaning operation took place on all the walls of the gendarmerie. You will find below a before / after.
