For once, the term 'cutback' will be greeted with some enthusiasm, as a number of local footpaths in the Neston area are due to undergo some much-needed maintenance work.
Cuckoo Lane in Little Neston is on the maintenance schedule currently underway.
Cllr Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council and member for Little Neston, said: "A number of residents have contacted me with their concerns about footpath vegetation maintenance, particularly in the Cuckoo Lane area.
"Officers have now supplied me with a map of all of the Neston area, showing planned maintenance over the next couple of weeks."
The purple lines are the recorded Public Footpaths and the red lines are the highlighted sections of the those paths that the contractor has been asked to clear.

Footpath officer Richard Ankers informed Cllr Gittins: "There are a number of routes around Cuckoo Lane that are on our Annual Maintenance Schedule.
"Commencement of the works necessary to complete the Schedule were a little delayed this year for obvious reasons, but the works are now underway, so hopefully the Cuckoo Lane area will soon be resolved."
