We have had to put up a fence to prevent further damage to the hedge plants. Hedge damage between Barhill and Dry Drayton has cost over £2670 in damage in one year just over 220 metres. We have 1800 metres planned in this area and we wonder if its worth the cost and energy if we live in a criminal society. How can nature and the environment prosper in an area where it’s all about walking the dog and trespass. Even with permissive paths for people to enjoy the countryside, people are determined to walk where they shouldn’t even to the destruction of wildlife habitats. As a community we must work together to stop the few spoiling it for the many. I went to the parish council meeting on Tuesday to tell them about the damage and problems. They where horrified about the damage and we must educate people to avoid it continuing.
