  XIANNING - Qing Ming Festival is approaching, Xianning Municipal Bureau of Civil Affairs issued a notice, urging to do a good job in tomb-sweeping and advocating to transform social traditions to promote ecological funeral and civilized tomb-sweeping.

  The theme of this year is “low-carbon tomb-sweeping, safe Qing Ming Festival”, popularizing ecological burial, such as buried under a tree, a small patch of grass or in the wall, and encouraging citizens to sweep tomb with fresh flower or silk flower, rather than joss paper, joss sticks and candles.

  Funeral service units should set up convenience service station to freely provide drinking water, tool, and fresh flower exchange service by joss paper, as well as free shuttle bus service for citizens.

  Meanwhile, every funeral service unit should publicize service procedure and service item charging standard, reduce or exempt basic cremation expense for those enjoying minimum living standard, rural household enjoying the five guarantees, urban people without identification papers, a normal residence permit, and a source of income.

  From last week citizens began to sweep tomb one after the other, and Qing Ming Festival is a peak season to pay respects to the dead, crowded with people and heavy traffic flow, so people can avoid the peak hour to sweep tomb and pay attention to fire protection. By Pang Yun (www.xnnews.com.cn)
