Thank you, SKDC. Everyone seems to complain about the district council (including me at times).
But I would like to say a big thank you to them and two of their employees, John and Adam, who on a soaking wet morning came and swept the pavement outside our house in Old Somerby, by hand, and took away all the sludge and gravel etc that had been lying there since the floods from earlier in the year.
I emailed SKDC and complained that the pavement was in a disgusting state and had been since March 9 after the last big downpour. To give them credit, they acted immediately and had the job done within two days.
Well done them, and especially well done lads.
