More Potholes

The village along with many other areas is suffering from an accumulation of potholes, with many causing problems on Sutton Lane near the new builds taking place. In fairness to the council responsible, workmen were seen to be addressing the problem last week.   Only the minor ones were filled in, the bigger ones were left to grow bigger and remain a danger to motorists or cyclists alike.
