The Town Council has 6 permanent and up to 6 seasonal ground staff who look after the Council's land including:
All the sport and recreational grounds: Adams Field, Alderbrook, Goldsmith's, Jarvis Brook, Lime Kiln, MOD Pitch, Silver Jubilee and Wolfe
All the nature reserves: Bluebell Wood, Country Park and The Ghyll
All the allotment sites: Herne Road, Owlsbury and Pilmer Road
The Cemetery and Garden of Remembrance at Herne Road
They look after the memorial garden at Canada Green (by All Saints Church) and also keep Chapel Green looking smart all year round with seasonal planting.
Year round planting is also done throughout the town with additional hanging baskets in the spring and summer to brighten up the thoroughfare.
The Council has recently acquired a large parcel of land at Summersales, on London Road and it is hoped that a second burial ground will be approved in the future for this site.
