WE have lived in West Court facing Baldock Road for many years, and have been thankful that the trees between us and the road have shielded us from traffic noise.

However, trees grow and last year I ask whether the trees could be trimmed.

I have no idea of the cost, but it seems anything over and above the council budget gets little consideration.
