Does your hedge need a haircut?

Some hedges in the village are getting a bit too big for their boots!

The Parish Council has been asked to remind residents that, if their hedge borders a pavement or footpath, it needs to be kept in check so that people can walk freely without brushing against the hedge.

This can be an even bigger problem for anyone with a pushchair or using a wheelchair - and there are now a few spots in the village where such users are unable to get past without going on to the road.

So please take a look at your boundary hedge.  If it overhangs the pavement, then there should be at least 2metres (6ft 6in) headroom from the pavement surface and, where the pavement permits, a clear width of at least 0.9metres (3ft).
