Gate post at Newsham Park, Prescot Drive finally repaired

I have been banging on about this gate post for ages but finally it has been repaired. It stood in the garden of the last house on Prescot Road, at the junction with Prescot Drive in a hedge, and when the demolition took place and the hedge was removed, there was a big gap where a lot of bricks were missing, around the base. I was worried that it was going to fall over and urged action. A handful of the proper bricks were identified and the post has now been repaired. This is a conservation area (not that there is much left to conserve now) so it is important that we don't let the little things slip.

Thanks to Tom Duckworth in the Parks department at LCC for keeping the pressure up until the work was completed to his satisfaction.
