Ashton Way Play Park

The play parks on Pillmere are another part of our management for the estate. We have been busy cutting these areas ready for the weekend.

Hope the rain stays away so the children can enjoy using the parks.

Round And Round The Roundabouts

Part of our program is to maintain three roundabouts in Saltash, Waitrose, Pillmere and Latchbrook. This can be quite a challenge with busy traffic to contend with. The Team are out at 6am to tackle the busiest being Waitrose. You may have seen our staff carrying out this work making the roundabout neat and tidy.

Back At St Stephens Churchyard.

Now that No Mow May is over we have been back at St Stephens Churchyard hard at work cutting the large grass areas. This takes time at this time of year, however the effort is worth the wait. You will see we are still trying to keep some wild areas to the edge of the grounds as we still want to encourage wildlife the this location.

Re-wilding areas we are looking to create

No Mow May

The service delivery Team will be taking part in the NO MOW MAY in various locations around Saltash. We do wish to point out that this wonít apply to some areas like the cemeteries, however some areas, edges, corners or around the base of trees will be left to encourage wildlife and natural plants to flourish. We will also be looking at some re-wilding areas and wild flower locations throughout the year. This is a positive step toward helping the local environment in the Town and encourage anyone to try this even in your own garden space.
