Last October the Gurn made a plea for some TLC for the Bailey Bridge in response to some images from one of our regular readers. The fear was that some of the boards would further deteriorate during the winter.
Well things have moved on, winter has passed and nothing has happened down by. River Community Councillor Fred Holmes raised the matter almost immediately at the start of his organisation's meeting on Tuesday night. Graham Marsden (our LibDem candidate in May) stated that "it had been reported."
"Nothing has happened as far as I know," said the Chair, Tommy Hogg.
"I know it's been reported previously, it's been reported again, because it is deteriorating really badly now," continued Fred.
"I'll go down and have a look at it, " said Oor Graham.
There we have it Gurnites, will the duckboards on the bridge continue to deteriorate to the extent that the wider part of the bridge will have to be closed to the public or will something magic happen before the elections on the 3rd of May?
