  • Still not cut back - why do we bother paying council tax?

  • Please can someone come out and look at these trees it is impossible to get passed and also there is a wasps or bees nest in the trees which has caused my 10 month old granddaughter to be stung as the insects come into the house when warm weather and the doors are open.

  • I have contacted Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council about this hedge and others in the area and they admitted it was their responsibility to maintain them through their contractors Glendale. Unfortunately however, Glendale do not appear to be interested in maintaining this hedge and all of the other hedges, brambles and weeds which are overgrowing the footpaths on the Horeston Grange estate. They just let everything grow wild from March until October and then sometimes cut the hedges back in November/December if you are lucky! Once a year!! Basically they just cut the grass verges (and don't cut those not often enough). It's the same old story every summer. The Borough Council and Glendale grounds maintenance are an absolute shambles and it is shocking value for how much council tax we pay.
