  1. 1. Overgrown Hedges South Marston Parish Council 01793 686150 Following the recent warm and wet weather, a large number of hedges in the village are now very overgrown. This not only causes problems for pedestrians (who end up having to leave the pavement to avoid them) but also for vehicles trying to pull out onto village roads. Their view of pedestrians and oncoming traffic is obscured, potentially leading to accidents. South Marston Parish Council would be very grateful if residents would check their hedges and cut them back if they are causing a nuisance or covering road signs.
