  • The grass verges have been cut however the path remains a problem with new undergrowth on the path. This is a sad situation of money wasted as new footpath laid but not maintained effectively resulting in new growth due to lack of treating the surface against new growth. I am sad that there had been money spent on this footpath resurfacing it but maintaining it has not been fulfilled. What a waste of time and money!
