Grass in Cemetery not cut this year and we are now being plagued by mosquitoes and other bugs. This never happened in 22 years until you changed your policy on cutting the grass. It is an absolute nightmare.

This is with regards to Woolwich Cemetery Kings Highway. The grass has not been cut this year. It is over 3 ft high. We are plagued by mosquitoes and God only knows what bugs. We are being bitten to death. On top of that it's a complete eyesore. You have got to do something about it.

  • Nothing has been done, other than the grass and weeds continue to grow, even faster since the rain. Bug's multiplying every day. A complete eyesore and nightmare! This has got to be addressed I am even thinking of moving as the whole situation is very distressing. It used to be a delight to sit in the garden, now I only water and dead head the plants as it is so unpleasant.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • As you can see the grass has not been cut. The situation has not improved with the bugs. Now we have the wasps, as if we don't have enough problems. PLEASE GET THIS SORTED.

    Thanks

  • Council are absolute rubbish. It's the 1st of October and the grass has still not been cut, not once this year. It's a disgrace. So unsightly and any one buried there will be turning in their graves.
