Discovered today (11 August 2019) This is really dangerous. It is in the paid-parking area of the street near to Wilkos and Trev & Pete's Shearing Shed. Our car wheel even went into this (hopefully not damaged the car) which conveys the scale of this hole. It's very hidden from view from the car, and also from the bus stops (as it is hidden by the kerb). Any passenger leaving their car to step out, or any pedestrian crossing from the kerb to walk towards the shops on the Wilko side could easily fall into this and get hurt very, very badly and break something, particularly a child or elderly person.

Please could this be made safe or else coned off until it's made safe.

Thank you ...
