Cllr Jill Houlbrook: Council must do better on grass cutting

Upton Councillor Jill Houlbrook has been inundated with complaints about grass cutting in Upton.

Cllr Houlbrook has been lobbying the Council to ensure that grass is cut regularly and properly.

Jill says:

"Above is a photo of Holy Ascension church burial grounds after the grass has been cut. It’s an example of the standard of service Upton residents are receiving from their local authority.

"I’m horrified by the way this has been carried out. I find it disrespectful for the graves to be left covered in the cut grass and I have again raised the issue at senior management level.

"This is not satisfactory and it’s disappointing and distressing for relatives and friends visiting the graves. A resident was laying flowers for her late Mother’s birthday while I took the pictures and she expressed her disgust at how the graves have been left."
