This year the Grounds Maintenance Team are participating in No Mow May.

What is No Mow May?

No Mow May is simply the act of letting your lawn grow this May and beyond to tackle pollution, and to help and benefit wildlife with long grass and wildflowers! With over 20 million gardens in the UK, even the smallest grassy patches add up to a significant proportion of our land which, if managed properly, can deliver enormous gains for nature, communities and the climate.

We have selected 20 areas in the Towns and Villages across the Borough, including Polesworth, Atherstone, Coleshill also some of the smaller settlements.  The areas have been chosen based on size and location.

We hope the project will be a success and that more areas can be included in going forward. Please let us know if you have an area near you which may be suitable for No Mow May 2025 by emailing
