The busted bollard has been lovingly restored to its former glory, thanks to fixmystreet, and the council. It’s a great feeling when you wander past something and think – “I spotted that – and now it’s fixed!”
But here’s the annoying thing – here in lovely Blackheath, we are straddled across Greenwich and Lewisham councils. So far, three of the things I’ve reported have resulted in someone from the council calling me, saying “We don’t handle that sort of problem at that location. You need to tell the other lot”.
When this happened for the third time, I finally suggested that the two councils might be able to tell each other about the problems, and asked that they call me back to tell me who might be in charge of that sort of thing. So far, no reply…
Bits and bobs for you – the Blackheath Bike and Kite Festival now has its own site, instead of having to navigate around the Lewisham Council’s website: http://blackheathbikeandkite.com/
Twitter user @troublebrother is organising a meeting of South East London Twitterers… The Bugle is a bit shy, but may make an appearance, as Blackheath won the hotly contested location battle over Greenwich! The date still has yet to be decided, probably last week of June or beginning of July. I’m sure you’re allowed to go even if you don’t send “stupid little messages™! The website is http://seltwitup.wordpress.com/ You can follow the plans as they are drawn up by searching for #SELTweetup in Twitter.
And finally, the Bugle has lovingly entered this photo of the bus stop’s busted bollard into fixmystreet.com – thought you’d like to know.
And it doesn’t even look like it has been hit by a car… We must have some strong teenagers in Blackheath!
Added to fixmystreet, but how long before it is repaired?
