Grasscutting in the Village

The grassed areas of amenity land around Ovingham are cut by two separate teams. Most of these areas are cut by the county council though the parish council pay them for additional areas to be cut.
The areas around Windsor Crescent and Tyne Gardens however, are the responsibility of ISOS Housing Ltd who subcontract the grasscutting to Vale Contract Services.
It is not an exaggeration to say that the state of these amenity areas is a disgrace. These areas have never been in such a bad state in thirty years or more.  ISOS is clearly aware of the widespread dissatisfaction and you can click here to see what they have to say about it.

The parish council has already registered its profound disgust at the quality of service. However, it will be even more persuasive if lots of individual residents also contact them with their personal comments and observations.
