Steps and footpaths

From Julie C

Wednesday, 28 August 2013

Thank you to whoever cleared the steps down from Hurst Road, and to Paddy and Liam for strimmimg the footpath down from Old Town.

Please would other folk who have steps and paths near them do a bit of clearing.

Many years ago there were people paid to do this, there was a clean and weed free Buttress and Cuckoo Steps.

Even longer ago, I understand, there were people called 'lay men', who worked on clearing culverts and fixing walls.

I can't imagine we are now going to find money to pay someone to do all these jobs, but it does make so much difference when they are done.
