Chris Black had an email from a local resident today who had just walked down Hullbridge Road as far as Lubbards Farm. She was very concerned that “the pavement on the righthand side, from the ’40’ sign, was almost impassable with stinging nettles taking up the majority of the space; children with bare legs would be badly stung.”
Anything that could force children to walk in the road here is alarming; Chris passed the email immediately to County Highways. To their credit, County Highways emailed back within an hour and hopefully the pavement will be cleared promptly.
In the meantime, parents – be warned !
