Cllr Ken Moss said, "I noticed patches of moss in the lawn on polling day and was quite surprised by the look of it. One of the Council staff contacted me about other work which is taking place at the site and mentioned the green so I have requested that it is re-seeded at the end of the bowling season so as not to interrupt scheduled matches."

As soon as they were notified about the error they had been out to cut the greens within a few days. Mistakes happen but thanks to all affected residents for their patience while it was sorted out."

The park is very well used and two school parties were working in the woods during the judging session, including a group from Rishton Parish Church Pre-School which is based at St Peter & St Paul's Church and works with The Copperhouse for their Forest School sessions..
Cabinet member for Parks, Cllr Ken Moss, said, "You only need to take the briefest stroll through the wood to see a wide variety of flowers and wildlife. Community groups have worked on areas to provide new nesting boxes for birds and squirrels and there are also fantastic views across the reservoir. There are always improvements we can make but on the whole the Council maintain Cutwood to a good standard for all Rishton residents to enjoy. We're very proud of it."
