'NO MOW MAY' was announced in the Wirral Globe last week.

This national scheme seeks to protect and encourage wild life and plants.

No mowing will take place in parks and gardens and this can be seen as a contribution to this worthy effort.

What has Wirral Council done?

Virtue signalling, put notices "No Mow May" on 3ft wooden posts in all our open spaces, haphazardly planted, often in the middle of children’s play areas.

At what cost?

The reality is they had already decided, as a cost-cutting exercise, not to mow for two months.

To pretend this is for a different, more worthy, reason, is dishonest. Needless to say, local vandals have already removed or damaged many of the notices.
