The gate needs new hinges (it only has two hinges, it could do with having three or four for extra support), the diagonal support doesn’t appear to be doing its job – after the last bout of strong wind the gate is now on a lean and it difficult to open/shut. The bolt to close the gate was also forced off in the wind with a piece of the timber that it was secured to so that needs to be fixed too.
