Cllr: Wild flower meadow spoils memorial garden in Princes Risborough
A WILD flower meadow which a town councillor said spoils a memorial garden in Princes Risborough is to be kept for a least another year.
The meadow was introduced as part of the Stratton Memorial Garden off Queens Road, Princes Risborough.
Princes Risborough Town Council own the garden but the Risborough Countryside Group maintain the meadow.
At last night's town council meeting cllr Pam Williams said: "I don't think the countryside group have kept to what they said they would do."
She added: "It is a memorial garden and when you go in there that bit spoils it. I can't see how difficult it would be to cut it."
But other councillors believed they have not given it enough time to flourish.
Cllr Will Streule said: : "A wild flower meadow takes a long time to establish. It doesn't just happen in one year."
Councillors agreed 10 to 1 that the countryside group should continue monitoring the wild flower part of the memorial garden for at least another year.
