Request to cut grass at school

GRASS in the grounds of a primary school in Henley could be cut by the town council’s

GRASS in the grounds of a primary school in Henley could be cut by the town council’s parks team.

Badgemore Primary School has approached the council asking if it could undertake the work.

A report to the council said the school wants the park services to do the cutting as they already cut the verges outside the school. 

It estimates there would be 13 cuts a year, taking about two hours each, costing a total of £1,500.

Councillor Kellie Hinton told members of the recreation and amenities committee that she was in favour and Councillor Simon Smith added: “The playing fields there are bigger than anywhere else in the town apart from town council property.”



The committee agreed unanimously to support the scheme as long as costs were covered by the school. A final decision will be made by the full council.
