4 January - There are conscientious people working for Bexley council - click any image for photo gallery (3 images)
found the response of Bexleys out-of-hours emergency service to my report of
dangerous drain holes a little disappointing. A case of Listening to you but
not Working for you. Yesterday I emailed the Head of Area Teams & Northern
Area Manager with the same information. He is someone who has always responded very positively
to several similar reports in the past and this was no exception. Within a couple of hours temporary
repairs had been effected which should prevent motorcyclists coming a cropper. I feel I should name this
individual but I fear that to be praised here falls into a similar category to whistleblowers who expose
paedophilia and thieving and get sacked by
councillor Campbell for their trouble.
Its a pity that fixing other hazards isnt handled by the same department. This keep left bollard (photographed at night two days ago) has been in some sort of mess for something like 18 months despite several visits by F.M. Conway and others. It is still not concreted in but at least it does now illuminate after dark.
