Where are the gardeners?

10 September, 2021

• I WRITE to complain about the lack of gardeners in Islington.

At the back of my property – Ringmer Gardens N19 – there are two children’s play areas which are vastly overgrown and at risk of encouraging all sorts of vermin to move in.

Some of the bushes have very large spikes on them which, in itself, could cause a child to have a nasty accident. There are also some plants which are quite dangerous when consumed by animals.

I know they are blaming the “pingdemic” on this issue but even when in the middle of full lockdown we did not have this problem. Please, we are paying enough in council tax so maybe we should be given a small refund due to lack of services being carried out.

Ringmer Gardens, N19
