ON July 21 my sister and I were driving up from Essex to visit family and friends in Rotherham. I want to say it was a pleasure to drive through Wickersley into Rotherham and see all the amazing wild flowers on the grass verges and roundabouts plus other displays. Whilst waiting for the traffic lights to change it was really lovely to admire such lovely flowers.
What a great idea someone had to save cutting and trimming these verges.
I shall be telling my local council here in Essex about this scheme and hope they can do the same.
After all the bad press our home town has had recently it is good to say something positive.
Well done Rotherham.
