  • I am surprised that your workers cannot find the footpath that leads from the A45 down to Willow end through the fields. I know the entrance is overgrown but there is a footpath trust me between the end of Dodford and Grange Farm. The marker I placed on the map is pretty accurate. BTW, I am visually impaired so the steps are dangerous.

  • Street lights permanently on for the last six months before, globe farm on the A45 going towards Daventry , where new development was going to be and islands were constructed for right turn into it . New light columns were installed and obviously there is a problem with the dawn to dusk sensors . Why has no one done anything about the waste of power .
