Children and pets use this recreational space for exercise and
games - football, dog walking, picnics and kites are not uncommon.
We use this area every week.
Since Surrey took on responsibility for the mowing we are informed that Whitmore Green is considered a verge and therefore will only be cut 4 times a year. The green is not a verge, it is not next to a road. It is a recreational space.
Further, the lack of grass cutting impacts on
- potential health risks for children and pets associated with tics - and the potential for Lyme disease
- Curb appeal of the estate - the long grass makes the area look unnecessarily untidy
- Increase in hayfever symptoms for sufferers.
We invite you to come and visit the area for yourselves.
