The reduction of grass cutting from the Councils services will save them an estimated £100,000 and apparently it’s all in the spirit of nature. For those that can’t afford to pay for golf memberships or 3g pitches, the Councils offering might not seem very attractive at all, as it appears they’ve taken an all-out approach to cut back on even more services.
