5.  Footpaths and Bridleways:  A report had been received that a footpath between Burrow Hill Farm and Lower Burrow was obstructed by crops. Clerk would contact the landowner. There was also a tree that had fallen down across the footpath at West End. Clerk to establish whose tree it is and contact the owner. It was also reported that a drove on West Moor was severely overgrown, it was established that the drove was not actually a footpath so the issue would not be reported.  6.  Highway Matters: Complaints had been received that as the verge on Broadway had not been cut this was causing problems for walkers and cyclists. They have to walk further into the road and vehicles that are trying to pass them are becoming impatient waiting because of oncoming traffic. It was decided that we ask the contractor to cut the edge of the verge so that the overhanging grass etc didn’t hang into the road.

It was also asked whether any response about the steps leading to Giffords Orchard that are unsafe. Clerk to chase it up.   7.
