Ramsey Road grass cutting – 13th July 2021

Before and after cutting

After it was cut

Early Tuesday morning like 6.30am the lawn mowers were out cutting the grass at the Ramsey Road site. It is still not being cut by Highways although many requests have been made either by myself or through our co-ordinator, this is and has been over four years. Prior to this, they the the highways used to mow the grass verges from Ramsey Road heading in a westerly direction towards Pondersbridge. They then proceeded over the railway upto the lay-bye on the left, they then crossed the road heading down the road in an easterly direction cutting the verges and also the lay – bye where our boat is located. Now they only cut the grass on the Ramsey Road upto the railway , they then turn around and disappear into a side road.

Ayshea Sanders 11th July 1974 – 11th April 2021

Ayshea had been a member for many years and was dedicated to helping others. Apart from being a member of Whittlesey Street Pride, she also did a huge amount of work for the Doris Banham Dog Rescue. Not only helping at the rescue but also raising funds by for instance jumping out of a plane and sky diving back to ground. This was just one of the countless achievements raising money for good causes. She will be sadly missed for her wonderful personality and sense of humour. Rest in piece.
