The road outsice No 6 curves to the left as part of a turning area and acceaa to private garages and forecourt. There is a gully at the last bit of public road which has not drained properly for many years. Neither has the gutter from the start of the curve been swept. At about 10:30 this morning a contract vehicle swept the close missing that bit as usual. I gesticulted to the driver that he had missed some but he finushe his second pass along the N side of the road and left at about 10:35. At 10:55 he returnedf and made a paerfunctory attempt to sweep the awkward corner. None of this actually cleared the gutter as over the years of neglect it has become choked with well established grass. I think it has got to the state where only shivel and spade will be effective. (I have some photos which I can send when they are down-loaded)
