The Lesnes Abbey playground which was burned by what Councillor Craske called
"utter scumbags" has still not been repaired although a company called Play
Cubed were working there today.
To the alarm of local residents (who passed on the news to me) Play Cubed were not repairing the play equipment but instead ripping out the boundary hedge, they were well equipped to the extent that a mechanised wood chipper was in use.
According to a resident who asked what the men was going on, the hedge is being removed to open up the view from the road which is exactly what the residents don’t want. It acts as a bit of a sound baffle too.
If that is true, and unless the work is not yet complete I cannot see how tearing out the hedges has done anything to expose any would-be vandals.
