LETTER: Unkempt and scruffy verges

I write regarding grass cutting in Burgess Hill.

I have noticed recently that the frequency of when the verges are cut has dropped significantly. The town is beginning to look unkempt and scruffy.

Particular irritation is that grass cutting or verges and larger green aread is undertaken by different contractors and so when the grass is finally cut, it doesn’t all get done at the same time.

Living on the Priory Village estate, 3 separate contractors are used, adding to the frustration. The estate never looks neat all at once, like it used to. Instead it looks shabby.

Surely, it is not beyond the realms of possibility to co-ordinate the contractors so that their timings coincide?!
