  • Most of the bushes nearby have now had a trim, however I still can't get a double pushchair past this particular one (it's a struggle with a single as well) as it's still covering the majority of the path. With parking and bins being as they are the other side of the road, I'm forced to walk my 2 babies in the road where visibility is already limited and cars drive too fast for the road.
