    I asked how long it was going to take to fix it and the reply was "how long's a piece of string". The contractors that fitted the new lights were not Romanians.
    This is getting beyond a joke now. Remind me again what I pay £1100 a year concil tax for...

  • Still no action taken to get this street light functioning. Even more dangerous on the path now the nights are drawing in. The path is in total darkness at night.
