2009 is well under way and with Spring fast approaching we all need to make sure that we get on top of the estate management issues. The most pressing matter to tackle is that of keeping the shared grassy areas of the estate cut and not to let them get out of hand. We have been lucky so far with the weather being cold and little growth in the grass. However, the weather is getting warmer now and we need to put in place, a contract with a landscaper to cut the grass on a regular basis. As such members of the resident’s committee will soon be doing a door to door collection to gather funds for this important task. We ask all residents to be understanding and that maintenance of the estate is a shared problem that we will all tackle together. If everyone agrees to help out then the cost per home will be very small indeed. Let’s keep our estate looking at its best!
