You may be wondering why we are cutting grass in these current times.

Well, as you know government guidance and restrictions mean that the upkeep of community spaces is more important than ever.

As a result, it is also important that the grass around our vulnerable housing complexes are continually cut and looked after. Failure to do so could pose a risk to those out exercising, collecting medication or going to essential workplaces.

We are also continuing to move employees to different positions where demand for services is increasing as part of our business continuity measures. As a result, other important services (including grass cutting) are continuing, albeit in a scaled back manor. Our grounds maintenance teams form part of our Environmental Service, meaning those cutting grass can also support critical functions such as bulk uplift.

As always, safeguarding essential services and protecting staff and residents remains our priority. This is why it's important that we continue to maintain the areas of land near some of our more vulnerable residents. Staff will also continue to adhere to strict social distancing guidance, maintain the correct hygiene advice and wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment when carrying out work.

We thank you for your continued support.
