GRASS CUTTING

The Council cuts the Playing fields, paths through the Countryside areas, the small BOCM roundabout and verges within the 30 mph speed limits. Verges outside 30 mph limits, the large A19/A63 roundabout and the large Greencore roundabout are the responsibility of NYCC. The riverbank and the grassed area from Northfield to the riverbank are the responsibility of the Environment Agency.

The number of cuts at the Playing Fields during the season have been increased to encourage sports for children.   


DOG FOULING 

There have been a number of incidents of dog fouling on the playing fields recently and 4 people have been intercepted and warned that this behaviour is totally unacceptable. If you witness ANYONE taking a dog onto the play areas or playing fields please take details of the date, description of the offenders/dog and the address of the offenders and the Town Council WILL prosecute. The Town Council offers a £75 reward for information leading to a successful prosecution. See poster.
