I live on a short road where we all pretty much know one another although some have lived here a great deal longer than I have. The house next door has recently changed hands and the previous owner always had a pristine garden, front and back. The new couple are planning on creating off-street parking as they have two cars which means most of the front garden will be removed. Personally, I don't blame them as the road is narrow and the drives are short.
I was on my own garden this morning when two neighbours approached me and instructed me that I would have to speak to Mr & Mrs XXX as "It is not right that they should dig up old Mr YYY's garden". I pointed out that it is Mr & Mrs XXX's house now and actually they can do what they like with their garden.
These two neighbours were highly offended and furious with me because I refused to get involved, I politely told them that it is not really anyone else's business, whether we like it or not.
I now discover that these two neighbours have launched a petition to present to Mr & Mrs XXX complaining about their plans to create hard-standing for their car.
The new couple are lovely, they both work full time at very demanding jobs but they always make time to have a chat when not on duty and they have helped us in recent weeks when we were loading the car to do a tip run.
They had already told me about their plans to change the front garden and I do think it is a good idea.
Would you give them the heads-up about the petition?
