Ever get grumpy seeing broken fences and benches in your neighbourhood? According to the Oldham Evening Chronicle, a local cyclist called Stephen Rimmer aged 37 had got fed up about this sort of thing too.
Only, he decided to do something about it and set about mending them himself. He put right 18 benches and fences saving the council £3000. And the ex-army man did all this in the early morning so that no one noticed his community spirit.
