Solution to lack of grass cutting

From: Helen Wallbank, Priory Road, Hastings

Every week in the court round up in the Hastings Observer we read about numerous people being found guilty of crime and ordered to do unpaid work (community service).

Every year around this time we read about residents complaining about the grass verges not being cut. Is it only obvious to me that the people being ordered to do unpaid work could actually go out and cut the grass verges?
