Our 3000th Post

This is our 3000th post on onlineFOCUS.

We’d like to say ‘Thanks’ to all our readers, and all the people who leave comments. You make this website worth doing.

We will try to go from strength to strength, have a few successes for you , and a few surprises.

A bit like Ron last week when he went tenpin bowling with his family in Hockley – we doubt if many other district councillors can beat his score of 181 : !




Two More FixMyStreets

And they are from opposite sides of the district:


From Councillor Colin Seagers in Great Wakering:

Pavement trip hazard

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category by Cllr Colin Seagers at 12:45, Saturday 3 November 2012
Sent to Essex County Council 4 minutes later

In front of The Oysters, Common Road, Great Wakering, Essex (about 15m past Wedds Way) a crack and ridge in tarmac pavement running at 90 degrees across most of pavement width. 3 trips reported to me, including an ankle injury and broken teeth resulting.


and from Mark Hooper in Rawreth:

Blocked Drainage in Rawreth Lane

Reported by Mark Hooper at 12:29, Sunday
Sent to Essex County Council and Rochford District Council 1 minute later

After the downpour of rain today, water is escaping from the drainage gratings in Rawreth Lane near to Cheshunt Drive. The surplus water is then flooding the road. Presumably the drains are blocked. Please can this be rectified. Many thanks.
