Highway Self Help – The Marwood handyman
Marwood Parish Council joined the highway self help scheme and uses its funds towards maintenance and a parish handyman. He works within the seven Marwood Parish hamlets to:
- clean road signs
- keep grass and weeds cut back – he regularly cuts the grass on Marwood Green
- cut back foliage along roads and lanes especially on corners to keep a good sight-line
- clear drains (cost met by the Parish Council)
Being part of the scheme meant that early in 2016 he was able to hire a tractor and shovel to clear debris as a result of heavy rain.
