Make Lakeside green again

2019-09-03 06:01

Now that fibre companies are gone in Lakeside (behind the fire station and up to Boyes Drive) our kerbs, the properties that belong to our green-fingered residents are up to scratch once again. The rain which we have been waiting for has helped this take place, but on the other hand, it has created some mini-jungles.

I assume a fair amount of these properties are non-green-fingered residents or renters?

I know what you are saying; that its the responsibility of the council to look after the pavements – if that were the case we would all have to hack our way into our homes!

A renter who pays for his home is entitled to ask for help from the owner to upkeep the look of his property. Perhaps it’s a case of what the eye does not see the heart does not grieve.

Such a pity, we live in a charming suburb and a sought-after one.

So why not spread a little love and elbow grease around our Lakeside pavements. Cut back what you have grown; beg, borrow or ask for cuttings from your friends or neighbours. Perhaps they can help or offer advice. Let’s make our suburb shine with pride.

An avid green-fingered resident, Lakeside
