  • Good afternoon.

    The hedge has again increased in size. Now almost impossible to walk on pathway with pushchairs. The house is owned but unoccupied. I’ve spoken to the neighbours who live next door who have informed me of this. So any contact from yourselves may not be received by the owner.
