St Dunstans Hill is litter free

by Mary Burstow on 1 July, 2014

Many thanks so Sutton Councils street cleansing team, for doing such a good job picking up the litter along St Dunstans Hill by Spring Close Park, then going down the hill to Church Hill road.  It was beginning to look dreadful.  Most of it come from passers by, just dropping litter.  So far as I […]

Tidying up after Cheam Charter Fair

by Mary Burstow on 18 May, 2014

We have been running a revived Cheam Charter Fair on a Saturday for 3 years.  It always starts at 9:00 when St Dunstans School reads out the Charter and dances to Greensleeves.  But what really surprises me is how the fair always just winds down at around 1:00.  By 2:00 the crowds have melted away, […]

The Blob has been removed from St Dunstans Hill!

by Mary Burstow on 5 September, 2013

During the summer, Transport for London did an excellent job resurfacing part of the A217, St Dunstans Hill.  Unfortunately as part of thier work, a number of unsightly blobs of tarmac were left on the pavement, which would also be a trip hazzard.  I contacted TFL and asked them to remove the blobs, which they […]

Burnt out car, Spring Close Lane

by Mary Burstow on 23 June, 2013

I saw a burnt out blue BMW in Spring Close Lane.  I havn’t a clue what the story is.  Was it stolen or abandonded?  The number plate shows it was manufactured in 2009.  It just made me think what a waste of such a lovely car. Either way, it should not be there.  I have contacted […]

Overhanging Branches on St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 10 October, 2012

Am I the only one being driven potty by over hanging branches along the pavement of the A217 by Springclose Park?  Whenever I walk or cycle along this stretch, you have to duck to avoid the branches.  When it is wet it is even worse, as the water laden branches hang down even lower. I […]

New Dog Poo Sign

by Mary Burstow on 14 July, 2012

I do like this new sign which has been sprayed onto the alleyway near Springclose Lane.  But what a shame that responsible dog owners do not train their dogs to poo on grass, then pick it up in a plastic bag and throw it away in a bin. Indy tried to poo on the pavement […]
