Of course, I’m against graffiti. But what do you say to “I love my Mum”?
Kids were out and being kids, but parents were nearby and the neighbour whose fence was chalked didn’t mind.
Overwhelming concern whilst canvassing Osier Close and Oxbow Close off Robin Hood Way, is car parking. Whilst this could have been guessed at, this hadn’t come through on casework. Some doubt that permits will make a difference, but their effectiveness is why were having to introduce another phase, most probably in August. Some requests for grass and trees to be taken out for car parking space – priorities for investment remain on pavement and road repairs, but we’re short of money for that anyway.
Knifing didn’t come up, but drug taking in the Oxbow Close underpass did.
That grass in common areas had got long was mentioned, and some thought we’d arranged for it be cut before the canvass! (We hadn’t – but we have been reporting problems on a general level.) Weed spraying has been late too.
