    Hi, There are now more fence panels down in the public footpath from Hunters Rise to A6116, as previously reported and were not repaired. One is very near the stile, needs repairing asap, This is a regular occurence, lack of repair by the owners as they dont like people using the footpath!! Brambles and thorns are never cleared and local residents end up clearing it. Please can this be address as soon as possible, as if the fence comes down completely the footpath will be inacessible, which will probably make the land owners happy!!!

    Many thanks

    Ann
