Thorny Hedge – Titchfield Road

There were some really nasty thorns on this shrub overhanging the pavement from the Titchfield Road electricity sub-station.

Jim Forrest reported it to the Highways team at the County Council, and within a few days it had been pruned to leave the pavement clear of obstruction. The eyesore patch of weeds also belonging to the electricity board which had spoiled the outlook of a neighbour’s garden was cleared at the same time.
