Imagine a world where children run wild and have no respect for any thing or anybody, where swearing, spitting and antisocial behaviour is the accepted norm.
Imagine an even darker version of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, well there’s no need to use your imagination because all you have to do is come down to the village hall site and the skate park In particular on any warm day on a school holiday and this is the vision that will await you, but anyway on with some of the work we have been undertaking.
Mark has been making great progress with the work I have set him on the memory meadow project it’s been very hard work and his effort is very much appreciated .And should put me in good stead ready for the wildflower sowing in early may.
I’ve now put edging around the memorial stone and put bark mulch down and I feel this really has made a good impact, let’s just hope it doesn’t get vandalised.
We have also put up the latest batch of bird houses we have made.
Tony and me have now repaired and replaced the catch on the Back lane park gate entrance.
We are still spraying the dog fouling with orange paint that we encounter and have made a start erecting the pick up after your dog signs from Hilton dog walking group.
I have had to take down one of the wig whams that has been vandalised, it’s a shame but I felt it was the best and easiest action to take as it’s getting to be a very busy time of year.
I’ve started to spray weed killer where needed and I have also started the grass cutting routes that we undertake and I have started to re mulch some of our planted area’s stating on the mease.
Tony and I have been doing more repairs on the scout’s car park and I have decided to use concrete on some of the pot holes as gravel on its own just doesn’t do a good enough and lasting repair.
Whilst on about the scout’s car park we have had a incident where a lady in her car crashed in to the hazard cone’s we put in front of the council garage (no one was in the garage at the time), we put these cone’s there to try and protect our self’s from people running us over by putting them there as a barrier between the garage door and the road way in to the car park.
The speed at which some people come flying in is completely reckless.
Thank you for your time.
