Lady Bay - West Bridgford



Update on the Hook

We reported recently that due to maintenance budget cutbacks, the western section of the main field on the Hook (marked 'A' in the picture above) would only be cut once a year rather than mown regularly as at present.

The Friends of the Hook had not been consulted about this. However, following discussions between the Friends group and Rushcliffe Borough Council, it has now been agreed that two diagonal paths will be mown regularly across the field to at least make it easier to cross, with a circle cut where the paths intersect to provide a bit of a meeting point/picnic area/play area. The first cut has been carried out and we will see how this arrangement works in practice. Initial reactions from residents have been very positive but if you would like to comment, please contact Sam Hudson.
