I was pleased to walk around the village yesterday and note:
No illegally parked taxis, there were only two that were legally parked. It was either fluke or they are taking the hint!
What did concern me though is the smell emanating from Oak Leaf Farm Site, it was putrid, I feel so sorry for people living close by, it must interfere with their daily living.
I also heard on the night of the storm this week whilst having my windows open the sound of what I thought was an emptying of a glass bottle recycle truck, it was after 10pm so I thought it must be something else but after walking past yesterday and hearing the exact same noise I can’t be mistaken. Are the trucks emptying all night too? This too must interfere with daily living of locals, I live in Whatmore Close so am quite far away, if I can hear it, I can only image what locals can hear.
One last thing noted is the increasing amount of what seem to be local cars/vans parking on the pavement down Hithermoor Road, I’ve not noticed this until recently. Pushing a pram with two dogs alongside is becoming rather difficult to negotiate the local paths. It’s our responsibility as locals to set an example. I don’t understand why people have started doing this, the road is plenty wide enough for a parked and a passing car. Any ideas why this is occurring?
