Today I noticed an elderly couple struggling to reach the bus stop due to the amount of vegetation from the hedge over hangingvthe pavement. The gentleman was using a walking stick and was guiding his visually impaired wife. They needed to walk two abreast but were struggling with vegetation both at head height and foot level. Can the vegetation be cut back as soon as possible as it will only get worse as the growing season continues?
