While Mrs F was kindly driving me to a council meeting yesterday afternoon (it was pelting down) I took this snap as we were passing Beech Rise. The entrance seemed to be cordoned off with white-suited personnel in force, as well as the police.
Not until I got home in the evening did I find out that a man had been stabbed earlier. According to this morning's news a 15 year-old boy is being held in Bury police station and a knife has been recovered. This is a terrible thing to happen anywhere, but unheard of in this quiet lane on the edge of my ward.
Earlier in the day a house in Southgate Street was yet again hit by a vehicle. Council officials visited later and I am again urging action. I am told the pavement here is too narrow for bollards and it may have to be widened.
Scroll down to 7th September post to see when this last happened and you can see how much worse the damage is. This is clearly an intolerable situation for the residents
