Serco look after our parks and gardens. This includes grass cutting and weed control in:
- parks and gardens, children's play areas and sports pitches we own, plus
- tree, hedge and shrub maintenance, and
- maintenance of benches and pathways we own
If you need to report a problem with any of these areas, call Serco on 0800 031 9091.
