In the long grass
Laughed? I nearly did when I discovered the Lib Dem excuse for not cutting the grass in public areas was to encourage wild flowers.
Well I have news for our Lib Dem-led council. There are no wild flowers growing on the now unusable Green in Rudmore Park. It has become neglected and now hosts knee high grass.
Kids on the green are becoming a rare sight and dog walkers have taken to walking around the green on the road. Even the resident green woodpecker (which are renowned for feeding on short mowed lawns), has decided to fly off to a different country where the grass is most certainly shorter on the other side.
But there is a bigger picture to all of this. This is just one small way that this Government's cuts are impacting upon our local neighbourhoods. This council has abandoned their responsibility to upkeep public spaces and this just goes to show how little they really care about people's living environments.
Less austerity cuts please, and more grass cutting.
