"Garden area neglected & filthy."

My mother was recently admitted to Moseley Hall following a stroke. She was also admitted about 5 years ago and then she enjoyed sitting in the garden area. When I have visited her this time I was shocked to see how dirty & neglected the garden is now. It is carpeted with cigarette ends & other litter & appears not to have been swept for months. The ashtrays are overflowing & there is no control over where smokers sit so it is impossible to find anywhere in the shade without being subjected to sidestream smoke. The rest of the grounds seem to be well cared for so I don't understand why the garden can't be kept clean (as well as weeded, etc.) If I did not live overseas I would volunteer to clean it up myself as a lot could be done with a morning's work. The garden is important to patients. Please don't leave it looking like a neglected pub carpark.
