Grasscutting - The Town Council is responsible for grass cutting the area surrounding St Michael’s Church; the closed churchyard; Foresters Park; and Methuen Avenue Play Area. In addition the Town Council has proactively undertaken to fund supplementary grass cutting in King George V Park and the Cemetery over the summer months given its concerns that the monthly cutting schedule organised by Wiltshire Council is insufficient to maintain these important community areas in a suitable and satisfactory condition.
