Thank you

To the two people who cleaned up the pavement alongside the road down to the village. They did a wonderful job of making the route for walkers more pleasant.

I know that there are a number of residents who take great pride in their properties and the environs surrounding them by clearing weeds from the pavements and from the nearby vacant plots of land. Their efforts are also very much appreciated.

We all expected Star Sol to finish off the estate a lot smarter than it is but sadly that never happened. They sold off plots that have never been built on and sold off land to other companies who attempted to build on them without success.

There is little we can do about the failed developments nor the vacant plots that are fenced off but we can at least ensure that the pavements outside our properties are clear of weeds. Unfortunately, that isn’t a one off job. I’ve sprayed the weeds that grow in the gap between the tarmac and the pavement outside our house several times. Both myself and council workers have chopped them away but the weeds come back, especially after a bout of rain. Clearing the weeds that have come back is a job on my list to do this weekend.

The bottom line is that we are unlikely to have the smart urbanisation that we were led to expect but at least we can try and make it a little better than it is.
