I could not agree more with Tolstoy and james127. Tim McNally had promised a better finish quite a while ago (before the elections? not sure if he is still around), and James thought the area was due for improvements last summer (after drainage repairs, I believe) but nothing has happened and the whole area is awful. I thought the original contractors were expected to make the area better. Maybe the Church's public liability insurers will now pay for repairs?
It would be nice if the local councillors showed some interest and posted on this thread.
