Despite some initial serious management and equipment fails during the recent flooding events, the system in our part of York came together thanks to Nick Massingham and Brian Collins and their teams. I’m sure residents will join me in thanking them all.

Thanks also to Rachael Maskell for her involvement not only in our patch but across the city. And to Guildhall Cllr Denise Craghill and her Green Team who gave valuable practical assistance. It is reassuring to know that we still have reliable staff and workers committed to the the city and its residents.
