    I live in No. 18 Guernsey Grove Estate and I am a freeholder. I do all I am able to, to ensure the estate is kept tidy. I attend to the garden in the front and it was by efforts that the plant boxes were put in front of the shute. As a result rubbish rarely is put there. would it please be possible for more rose bushes and/ or plants be planted in the rose garden. The existing bushes are now very old. Last year I pruned the bushes, resulting in a lovely show of rose blooms. I have spoken to other residents and they would take greater care of the garden if the Council gave us support. NB. The light over the shute has been on night and day for about 6 months for which we will be charged an extra service fee. Thanking you.
