Happy Henley residents after grass complaint

RESIDENTS in Henley are delighted after contractors finally tamed their garden.

Gillian Russell complained to landlord Orbit Housing Association after grass and weeds around her bungalow and in communal gardens on Arden Road had grown up to two foot long.

The 76-year-old said residents were unable to sit in the gardens which she described as a ‘wilderness’.

She added Orbit had promised to prioritise the job but kept pushing the date back.

But following her complaint, workers arrived armed with equipment to tackle the overgrown gardens.

The resident said: “One of the workers agreed that it was very bad, and shouldn’t have been left. I sent a message to Orbit saying they had been, and the men had worked really hard. I just hope they come back in two weeks.”

Orbit spokesman Dan Bird responded: “We appreciate the need to care for shared garden spaces in our communities and have now completed this work. We have also put a plan in place with our contractor to ensure that the gardens will continue to be maintained on a regular basis.”
