With reference to the grass cutting feature in your paper: The grass in Woosehill parks was cut three times
last year – once in the early spring and twice in the autumn.
It was not cut at all during the school summer break meaning the kids could not use the parks to play in, it was also impossible to walk the dogs as the grass was so long.
I raised this matter with the council but was fobbed off with a story about letting the grass longer to help wildlife.
Maybe if the grass cutting teams spent a little more time cutting the grass and a bit less time sleeping under the shaded trees they could get on top of this problem.
These problems do not seem to occur in Reading or Bracknell whose areas all seem well kept.
The grass has been cut once so far this year about four weeks ago so is very long at the moment
