Following on from the letter and photo from Mr Whitby in January’s Village, I too have enclosed a photo of our grass verge.
This damage was done less than 24 hours after we removed our bin from the verge at the request of the council.
The reason we leave our bin there is to protect our verges from inconsiderate drivers who decide to drive or park along them, churning them up.
As Mr Whitby said, some of the residents in Middle Drive like to take care of our environment by keeping it tidy and respectable, so our bin is back out there on duty – and if the council remove it like they have said they will, then something else will be put in its place until they can provide us with a better solution to the problem.
Mr & Mrs Partridge, Cofton Hackett
