In a previous post I commented on the state of our verge. Our house butts up right to the wall and despite all enquiries to Parish Council, Water Board and Highways Department nothing has been done, they pass the buck between each other. Husband and I decided we would buy these plastic verge markers - we thought it would be a back-breaking job digging holes etc but it was not too bad. Our neighbour lent us a "spit" and a "spike" to help with the digging and away we went. We have also dug in a recycled luminous marker I found in a ditch - this marks where the water meter is placed as a reminder to the local tractor driver who rather than slow down when a car is coming the other way prefers to drive over our verge. It may be that other residents will complain to the Parish Council - in a way I hope they do as the issue will then be sorted out with the Highways Department perhaps putting in kerb stones.
Just another rant (if you can bear reading it) verge markers have to be made of plastic so that if cars run into them no damage is done to the car. I say b*****cks to the cars and their careless drivers - what about our house? I do not go driving on verges, I slow down if another car approaches me in a narrow lane - nowadays it is all hurry hurry hurry. OK OK I have finished now!
