I walked the dog round the Pightle this afternoon (19th July), I was surprised to see only one Trustee raking the recently cut grass. It has been a hot day with the temperature at 26 degrees C.
As you can imagine raking is not a small job. I have been involved in grass raking twice, along with 7-9 others; it is backbreaking work and takes all day. Why on earth was only one trustee doing this job? I did ask; the response was ‘you know how it is’.
Where were the other Trustees, why are they not involved?
Why have the Trustees not booked Community Payback to help, or paid for The Conservation Volunteers (formerly BCTV)?
