  • Someone has been out to "fix" it, but it is a very poor job - perhaps not completed? A parishioner has complained about the state of the footpath

  • There is evidence of a repair being attempted, but it is patchy, messy and not properly sealed. There are places where holes remain and other places where the cracks have not been repaired at all. The mess is so widespread that the two photos below do not fully capture the extent of the shoddy workmanship.
