Help in war against weeds

FOLLOWING a letter in the Dispatch regarding weeds in Hucknall. Our area, Shortwood Estate, is getting pretty bad as well. I have written to Notts County Council since I am told this is in its hands. It replied: “Following our initial investigation/inspection, work has been identified and ordered to resolve the issue. We will notify you once this work is complete.”

I hope it is not too long before the work is done although, to be fair, I think that many of us can help a little by clearing weeds from our own doorstep. But equally, I know there are very many who simply cannot physically do this kind of work.

Come on Notts County Council, let’s get our streets tidied up please.

KEN WILLOWS,
