Call for brickies to help rebuild wall that "keeps falling down"By Hugh Fort
November 08, 2012
Bracknell brickies are needed to help rebuild a wall that keeps falling down.
Nigel Dumbrell, a member of the Martins Heron Residents’ Association, is appealing for professional help to repair the eyesore.
He said: “I have lived here since 2000 and this wall initially had only a few bricks missing. However, over the last 12 years more and more bricks have been removed and strewn across the grass.
“I have tided up the loose bricks into a pile and am asking if any local building companies or individual bricklayers are able to offer their skills voluntarily for a couple of hours so we can get this eyesore repaired and the local community looking tidier.”
The wall is next to the Tesco roundabout in Martins Heron and borders an area of Highways-owned open land, although the wall is actually co-owned by residents.
None of the homeowners were able to tackle the repair but have given Nigel written consent to coordinate the community effort.
He added: “I have been trying to get this done for more than a year and although many of the bricks have been saved, several have disappeared so I am also asking for the bricks and mortar to be donated along with the bricklayer’s time.
“I have spoken with the Cross Gates Close residents who are affected by this awful site and they would welcome its repair and reinstatement.”
