  • Thank you for attending to this problem. I am aware that your contractors have done some work on the drainage, but unfortunately the problem is NOT YET FIXED (see uploaded photo). We have had only moderate rain overnight and the gutters in Acre Ditch at this location are still not draining away. Grateful for your further attention, please.

  • Large pothole in road. Sometimes unavoidable due to parked cars outside Primary School. Pot hole has caused a front right tyre puncture in the side wall of my tyre. Pothole is on the right hand side of the road as travelling eastbound just after the primary school
