The hedge at 143 Broadway, Didcot OX11 8SB is so overgrown onto the public footpath the width is reduced by half. Social distancing is impossible, so you have to walk round onto the road. It has been like this for over a year.

  • I wish to report the cafe "Wraps & Shakes" (160 Broadway). The cafe has cordoned off half the width of the pavement (which is at it's narrowest point here) to accomodate TWO rows of tables. The impression is that the cafe is staking a claim on the pavement outside it's premises, assuming possesion of the pavement. I think it should only have one row of tables extending onto the pavement, and the barriers cordoning off half the width of the pavement should be removed.
