Grass­gate

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

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
