The Parish Council pays to have the grass cut during the growing season at about fortnightly intervals depending on the weather and the availability of our contractors. Further the Council is prepared, within reason, to organise additional cuts to coincide with special events taking place on the fields. This will be done at no cost to individuals or groups.
Please liaise with the Parish Clerk on all matters related to grass cutting and maintenance of the playing fields and children’s play areas.
