Several residents have expressed concern with the state of the grassy areas of the Village.

Shustoke Parish Council spends the majority of its annual budget on horticultural services for the Village, and has increased the sum allocated for 2018/19.

We have contracts for grass cutting on the sports field and other areas in the Village, alongside maintenance of the planters and rose beds etc. but grass cutting in particular is weather-dependent and there has been a significant delay due to the heavy rain before the more recent sunny periods.

We understand the grass will be cut this week.
