Thorny bushes

Reported by Mrs Gregory at 14:52, Fri 22 June 2018

The bushes around this area drop massive, strong thorns all over the paths and grass (see photo), and it's particularly bad after they've been trimmed. I've been pulling them out of my kids bicycle tyres for years and have spent a fortune on repairs and new inner tubes. Now today I've pulled this thorn out of my poor dogs paw, this is the third time it's happened to him in 18 months. These bushes are not pretty and don't seem to serve any purpose. Please can they be dug out and replaced with something more attractive and wildlife friendly like lavender or something?
