Regrettably, there are some complaints to pass on.: We have been asked to request that drivers of cars and vans do not drive over the verges. Along the main road in particular the verges have been churned up and destroyed, and the footpath covered in mud in wet weather, making it particularly difficult for older residents, and mothers with toddlers or buggies to pass. Drivers are also reminded that it is illegal to park on the footway, as seems to be happening rather too often.
