The Lengthsmen scheme which was piloted in the Forest last year has now been rolled out across the whole of Gloucestershire. Councillor Richard Leppington (UKIP Blakeney and Bream), who lobbied for the initial trial in his division said " There are lots of jobs like cleaning street signs, emptying culverts and cutting back on vegetation that were not getting done. The Lengthsmen team will pick these up. They will make a huge difference to the community"
The Lengthsmen have already started in Newnham, cleaning and cutting back at Ulawater bus stop and fixing numerous loose paving slabs on the High Street.They have also cleaned gullies in the Awre area.
