    Whilst I appreciate that this problem has been reported, I would suggest that it now requires urgent attention. Both leaving and entering Wrights Lane represents a real danger of collision with vehicles travelling along New Road, also pedestrians are put at risk, having to walk in the road. If the person responsible will not cut the hedge, who will ? Or do we have to wait till an accident occurs ?

  • Although the hedge in New Road has been cut. the one leading into Wrights Lane has not and as a result any vehicle entering Wrights Lane from New Road has to cross the centre line directly approaching the right hand bend into Wrights Lane, or risk running the overhanging branches along your vehicle. This is an annual problem and surely the shrubs/trees should be cut to a height that allows safe entry and exit from Wrights Lane.
