Grass cutting controversy in Kingsmead

First published in News Northwich Guardian: Photograph of the Author by , Chief Reporter

HOUSEHOLDS have been divided about grass cutting regimes in Kingsmead.

The parish council had left grass to grow long on verges alongside the spine road but have now had it mown short after complaints from residents.

Clr Laura Hoey, parish council chairman, said: “We made the decision to leave it long for two reasons.

“One is that the contractors couldn’t get on it because it was wet and we were going to see if it would look nice and be good for wildlife.

“But we did always intend to cut it if it looked scruffy.”

Clr Andrew Murison, who admitted that he and his wife had differing opinions on how it looked, said: “It’s purely and simply about personal choice.”

The council has decided to keep the grass short but leave it long for wildlife at the back of the bank, where it cannot be seen from the road.

Its not the grass residence should be kicking off about its the absolute lack of litter picks that dont happen along that strech of road and the spine road in general. The barrow boy stops at the old art college and turns back towards northwich which has been seen on many occasions by myself and confirmed that this is the correct procedure for the round by the council. If you want a litter picker on kingsmead you have to call and complain and even then you dont always get one. At least the long grass hid the plastic bottles,macdonalds litter and crisp packets that lasy uneducated people throw out of there car windows.

Seriously? This is what you call news?

Make sure you include this exposé on your resume when applying for jobs with the national newspapers. They'll all be clamouring for your services.

Before you call anyone uneducated, maybe you should check the spelling and grammatical mistakes in your post???

Predictive text wouldn't give the word "lasy"

Any lasy daisies in the grass?
I hate predictive text - I tried to text my mum, and it kept calling her nun!
Seriously, tho', leaving the grass in the verges long is very good for the wildlife, and will save the council money, which could be put to good use, like more litter pickers!
