Wonky Matlock Crescent Sign

by Mary Burstow on 9 January, 2015

I spotted this rather wonky looking sign for Matlock Crescent over the weekend.  It looks as if it is coming away from the wooden backing.  I have now reported it to Sutton Council, who will hopefully either repair or replace it.

Dumped cones along St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 6 September, 2014

I don’t mind admitting to hating litter along the verge of the A217, St Dunstans Hill in Sutton.  Much of it is  from people just walking along and chucking stuff on the ground – especially beer cans.  However Transport for London  really made me see red in July. About three months ago, TfL did some […]

Whenever I walk up and down St Dunstans Hill, I see litter along the embankment.  It is especially bad between Matlock Place and Church Hill road.  It is the responsibility of Transport for London to pick it up, but whenever I chase, the response appears to be, “Never today, always tomorrow”.  So far as I […]
