Cutting remarks

Published in Letters by

I AM very surprised with the current council not keeping the fields of Tang Hall in good condition.

We have lived in the area for 28 years and have memories of our children playing out on the short grass.

The fields now look as though they are to be kept for livestock rather than the community.

I wonder is it because Burnholme is closed that the children don’t matter anymore in this area?

Buy a lawn mower York council and give the fields back to the kids.

I presume you mean the field on the side of Melrosegate and Fourth Avenue, lots of money was spent on that field a year or so ago levelling and reseeding, yes now it left to its own devices, filling up with weeds and a dogs toilet. There used to be a childrens football pitch on it. This end result is not surprising at all with your labour council.

Think you may find that it isn't the Councils responsibility to "cut" that field!
I believe the upkeep etc was passed to a local school and Sunday football club.
