  • This issue is forcing very young children and parents with pushchairs to walk on the road in the very busy school pick time to maintain social distancing. It needs to be addressed ASAP.

  • Hedges are still overgrown and pretty much blocking half the path as well as being a complete eyesore. Please can they be cut back level with the rest of the hedge.
