  • The overgrown hedge between Edington Place and Letcombe Walk is still an issue. This PUBLIC FOOTPATH is now virtually impassible. Although the hedge is part of a private house it is causing extreme difficulty to use this path.

  • As of the 27th Feb 2019 no action has been taken to address this problem, the hedge is so overgrown that to walk here you have to walk on the slippery grass/mud, this is a health and safety issue as it is likely to result in somebody slipping and falling.
