Maintenance

Peter Ash has repainted signposts 35, 114, 201, 319, 320, 222, 223, 236, 217, 204, 312, 34, 43 and 78, removed a graffito on S472 in Ormskirk, and inspected 473 and 474 nearby. “Before and after” photos below show the difference his painting makes. I have also retrieved S024 from Eccles Road for shot-blasting and powder-coating.

Finally, those who walk on Blacka Moor on the Totley side of Sheffield will have noticed that S276 has been cut down to half its former height and had its memorial plaque removed. This has been taken up with Nabil Abbas of Sheffield Wildlife Trust, who manage that area on behalf of the City.

I can be contacted on: 0161 283 7824, if you have any questions.
