Tracking down Welwyn Hatfield’s worst grass verges
MESSY, an eyesore, absolutely awful, and discrediting.
And those words were among the nicer ones you used to describe Welwyn Hatfield’s grass verges.
Our readers have continued to contact our newsdesk since our latest story a fortnight ago on the problem blighting our borough.
You let us know the worst areas for muddy, churned-up verges.
And, as our photographs taken by snapper Casey Gutteridge show, you’re not wrong.

So now the Welwyn Hatfield Times is saying enough is enough.
It is time for the authorities – both the borough and county councils – to act and clean up our streets.
We shall be contacting both councils with your comments and our pictures, calling for action.
Editor Terry Mitchinson said: “All over Times Territory verges have been churned up by a combination of wet weather, inconsiderate drivers and a failure to act by both councils.
“It seems symptomatic of the lowering of standards throughout the area and enough is enough.
“Some areas are nothing short of a disgrace.
“We’re calling on our readers to keep letting us know of areas that need attention and we’ll pass the details on to the relevant authority.”
