  • This path has still not been cleared, now that we're starting to get wet weather the ground is becoming slippery where there are weeds laying across the path. There are nettles that are quite high and you have to brush passed them to get through. I use this path every day and it's not clear enough for pushchairs or wheelchairs. There is also a double mattress that has been dumped there, that has been there pretty much all year.

  • Can somebody please update us as to if/when the hedges and weeds will be cleared. My son and i were walking the dog and a thorn on an overgrown wild rose bush caught his face, so we would very much like this cutting back as far as possible. Thank you

  • Really pleased to see that the path along the edge of the football pitches has been cleared, it has made a massive difference. However, the double mattress is still where it has been all year.

  • Hi, the overgrown areas along the footway adjacent to Deeping Rangers football ground have been cleared, but the overgrown trees and brambles etc along Towngate East haven't and are still covering more than half the footpath in places making it difficult to walk/run down without taking your eyes out. Also there is a double mattress still lying in the footway. Please could these areas be seen to? Regards, Mr Kilbon
