Hedge Cutting
There was recently a Tarvinonline article about the need for the owners of hedges to keep them cut back, particularly where they are next to pathways used by pedestrians or cyclists.

When a hedge is cut back, one of the unintended consequences, if the hedge contains hawthorn or some other thorny variety of tree/shrub, and if the cuttings are not brushed up, is punctures for cyclists or thorns in the soles of pedestrians' shoes.

Ideally, therefore, householders should wherever possible sweep up and remove their hedge-cutting debris, and farmers or their contractors should use deflectors so that the debris goes into the field and not on the pathway.

Ed:"This is a serious problem if you try to walk down past Grosvenor Rd on Bye Pass Road, and, along Tarporley Rd on the footpath past Mount Pleasant Farm!
If there are other areas that need urgent attention then contact the Parish Council Clerk Mike Hassell by email to"
