Southern Road, Thame OX9 2EE, a plastic bollard on the pavement opposite 19, Southern Road placed there to prevent vehicles mounting the pavement and using it as part of the highway. The bollard was damaged on the 22nd March 2019 by a vehicle and removed by the council but never replaced. This pavement is used by parishioners going to St Joseph's Catholic Church, pupils of St Joseph's school, Lord William's school, younger children at the nursery school at the recreation ground. The guides and scouts headquarters are also on the recreation ground and there is the children's play ground. It is also the way to the nature reserve. There is also a sheltered houses complex near by so the residents use Southern Road. We who live close to were the bollard was, see on a daily if not on a hourly basis vehicles mounting the pavement on this junction and travelling at speed. 10 yards from where the bollard was, during the last few days, a Telegraph pole was struck and damaged and has been replaced this morning. If a Telegraph pole has been hit on the pavement what is to stop a person being struck. So please please may we have our bollard back. Yours sincerely Janet Eaton
