Have your say

May I take this opportunity, through your paper, to thank the two gentlemen who stopped to help my wife who had a fall, caused by the build-up of wet leaves at the crossing at the junction at the bottom of Church Street.

The build-up of leaves had become sodden which caused the fall. She didn’t suffer any broken bones, no thanks to the council, whose responsibility it is to keep the road crossing and footpaths safe for senior citizens to walk.

I fail to see why fallen leaves is such a problem. Every year at this time where there are trees they fall.

Now if they are not cleaned up they cause a problem. The council, to my knowledge, own at least one road sweeper.

If the person responsible for this department claims the equipment is overworked then by logic another machine is required.

Step forward the manager of this department to explain to the public that the problem is too great to overcome.

Step forward the councillor who holds the portfolio for this department to explain to the public that the problem is too great to overcome.
