Let wild flowers and grasses grow

I so have to disagree with the letter complaining about the overgrown verges and central reservations (News Guardian, July 3).

I am so pleased the council have left the wild grasses and flowers not only do they look interesting and colourful, they attract wildlife, especially bees, which we desperately need to preserve.

The edges near the paths have been cleared so safety is not an issue.

Why we would want to poison our lovely greens, where families picnic and play, with weed killer is beyond me.

Well done North Tyneside council for helping to preserve this beautiful world we live in, you are setting a great example to other areas and the next generation.
