FoBH clears paths and removes hazards

Even at this time of year, small trees do come down on the Heath and block paths. Unfortunately St Albans Council do not see this as a priority so they are often left for some time. A member of the Friends of Bernards Heath cleared this path as it has been blocked for some time.  There may be hazards lurking in the long grass as well.

There can also be nasty surprises lurking in the longer grass at the edge of the Heath
playing fields. This trip hazard (the remains of a litter bin bracket?) had to be cut
from its concrete base with a portable generator and angle grinder by a member
of the Committee. Fortunately it had not been discovered by a child running into it
and cutting their ankle, or worse.
