  • With the wetter weather more people are being forced onto the grass with bicycles, pushchairs and on foot and this is making the whole area more slippery and dangerous.

  • I guess another cheesed off local has take this in hand and cut back some of the offending greenery. Cuttings have been stacked in the hedgerow. This still needs professional work and clearance.

  • No professional intervention to date. The cuttings that had stacked in the hedge are now getting kicked onto the pavement making a trip hazard to add to that NHS.
