Members of the public may have noticed that a new company is now cutting the grass throughout the Parish. This is because the contract with Trent Grounds Maintenance ended in 2016. The Council requested quotes from several companies, including TGM, who were unable, at that time, to submit a quote for work in 2017.
All councils have to obtain the best value for money for work carried out within the Council area. This relates not only to cost but also to the quality of work completed. Shed Ground Maintenance were highly recommended and submitted a competitive quote.
Unfortunately, there have been a number of teething problems with the contract. The Council is working hard with the company to resolve these issues and there is now a marked improvement in the work being carried out. Should any parishioners become aware of any problems they are asked to contact the Clerk or any member of the Council.
