AT last. I seem to have had success in getting some value for the extortionist Council Tax we pay.

In August, I phoned North Herts Highways to complain about the state of the pavement outside our house in Sun Hill.

Within two days someone came and repaired a small piece in the wrong place, completely unconnected to the problem.

I phoned again. After further inspection, they then promised to come again, and now they have completely repaired and resurfaced a long stretch of pavement.

I, and am sure other residents, am as delighted as I am surprised.
