Verge Maintenance in Hennock
Hennock Parish Council were awarded funding from the HMCEF towards the cost of employing a contractor to undertake lengthsman duties within the parish.
The parish lengthsman has kept verges and open spaces cut back as well as areas around the benches. He has inspected and kept clean bus shelters, sprayed weed along paths and roadsides through main thoroughfares of the three villages and cleaned gullies and drains.
Generally, he has improved the overall appearance of the village which looked scruffy and untidy following DCC cuts. The work of the parish lengthsman has been very much appreciated by residents of the parish and there has been a significant improvement in the overall tidiness of the parish.
