I’m sure there are a huge number of instances of community good spiritedness in the borough which I neither see nor hear about.
There are instances of such civic pride that I do see. One such is the care and attention given to an island in Briar Avenue in Lightwater by Annie Mathewson-Rowe.
Recently I spotted a man removing moss and weeds growing between the stones on this island. I wonder if it’s a relative or neighbour of Annie. In the photo you can see the difference that was made, to the right some of the stones haven’t yet been cleaned.
