Time for a trim
I am writing to express my disappointment and surprise that Nottinghamshire County Council had said there will be no grass cutting currently.
Unfortunately, for us, we have the county council responsible for upkeeping — or rather, not —our verges, whereas the rest of Balderton appears to have Newark and Sherwood District Council.
They have had two or maybe even three cuts this year already. We have had none.
It is not just an eyesore, with extremely tall weeds, but it makes it very difficult to cleanly pick up dog poop. Some people are just leaving the mess in the long grass.
I do not understand why the grass verges cannot be cut, even in these unprecedented times. — CAROL A. CHIGNELL, via email.
