A Chance to Walk Hand in Hand!

The gradual encroachment of grass and debris across pathways is not something that you really notice on a daily basis. You just become aware over time that you can't walk together easily, or walk with a push chair and a child by your side. I suppose it is fair to say that you just get accustomed to things and only if it is wet or particularly muddy do you get annoyed.

So it has been with the southern side of Holme Street for the last few years. As a Parish Councillor I was determined that one day I should get it cleared. When one bit of the path narrowed to less than a foot I did get my spade out and clear it, but this wasn't quite what I had in mind!

 

 

I complained to CW&C using their on-line complaints system in February. I encouraged my neighbours, especially those on Grosvenor Road, to complain as well. I heard nothing and fired off a complaint. And, after a letter and — sort of apology — today the men and the equipment arrived and the pavement was finally cleared.

In the correspondence I did receive an email link to report problems, so I have reported the other side of the road as well. If anyone wants to add to the pressure then this is it — trust me, it does work! Click here to report a problem with pathways/pavements

So if you were caught up in the traffic hold-ups today on the A54, I am afraid it was all down to me! Brian and I will definitely be strolling along hand in hand any time soon!

Maybe it was wishful thinking that we could get through 4 weeks of the Gnome Trail with all of the Gnomes intact and not vandalized or stolen. Unfortunately on Friday night, some mindless individuals with no respect for people's property, families enjoyment and the fact that they have upset young children, took it upon themselves to steal one of the gnome displays from Crossfields, and...

Half way through, and how many gnomes have you found?Its been wonderful watching so may people walking around the village, trying to find the most elusive of the 76 gnomes. The beautiful weather has helped, but it is the creativity on show that has been the main event.There is still plenty of time to take part, it runs until 22nd June, and Trails can be bought for £2...
