National pothole dayNational Pothole Day

It probably escaped most people’s notice, but 15th January was the UK’s first ever National Pothole Day.

The awareness day was promoted by one of the websites that run a reporting application, but Dorset County Council is encouraging residents to report potholes and defects directly, so why not get on and report any road issues including potholes, overgrown hedges, broken street lights, blocked drains or call 01305 221020 (and remember to let your Parish Council know what you have reported,
Puncknowle@dorsetparishes.gov.uk  or   telephone 01308 897726).
