Letter: Weeds - Town’s good looks in decline

Kerbside weeds
Kerbside weeds

I don’t know whether weeds are growing at a rapid rate this year, or I am just more aware, but I was shocked to see the kerbside growth on some of Harrogate’s minor roads.

I seem to think that in the past a vehicle would spray the weeds and keep the areas looking tidy. I have heard that Harrogate’s good looks are in decline as the weeds take hold and we start to look scruffy.

I don’t know if there are any rules relating to residents undertaking this role, but if we are not prepared to take some pride and responsibility in the way our streets look I fear the mini triffids will have a field day.
