Threat to boards
TWO community notice boards in Portishead could be lost because of irresponsible users.
Stationery and print shop, Morgan Westley, has provided the notice boards in High Street for free public use for many years.
Now one of the owners, Rosemary Westley, is contemplating removing the boards because users are discarding scores of drawing pins on the floor below them.
Mrs Westley says she is fed up with getting punctures in her mobility scooter because of thoughtless members of the public who do not clean up after using the boards.
She said: “It has become a huge problem not only for me, but for other mobility scooter users in the town, of which there are many. If it continues the only way to put a stop to the matter would be to remove the boards which would be a great shame.”

Mrs Westley says she will give users another month to clean up their act before taking action.
