Its that time of year again! time to check our boundary trees and hedges do not impede the passage of pedestrians or vehicles on our village paths and roads. Please check and if necessary get your secateurs or loppers out or even a spade to clear the brash that is spreading over the path outside your home. Some of you may receive a letter from the Parish Council asking you to trim a hedge or cut back some branches – please accept them, as they are intended, as helpful prompt about an odd job that needs doing to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles around the village.
