Derek, it's privet and may have lost its leaves at that end due to being more exposed to cold wind over the winter. I can see plenty of new shoots so think it will be fine. However, it looks as though that section is being shadowed by the top which is overhanging it, so would trim the top back.
Ideally, a hedge should be wider at the bottom than at the top in a sort of "A" shape so bear that in mind when you trim it in the future. Doing that allows light get to all of it and helps prevent the lower sections becoming thin on leaves.
