I certainly hope so. The Soap Box Derby was a great success - there's been really positive feedback - and the intention is to make it an annual event CM

We fix potholes depending on lots of criteria, but safety is the most important. We're fixing 20,000 potholes this year, including ones under 50mm. PM

We have placed homeless people in temporary accomm with their pets when we can. It can be more costly but we appreciate the importance. We're also trying to sign up more pet-friendly landlords and to secure more pet-friendly properties all the time CM

One from Facebook: Why are you refusing to fix pot holes less than 50mm deep? Potholes at 20mm will still do a lot of damage.

We pass on what we received from the Gov't for schools to schools, which individually decide how to spend that resource. Are you thinking of a specific grant or grants? If so, please DM us so we can look in to this further for you. CM
