I AM writing on behalf of my husband and me and, I believe, many other residents of our borough to say thank you so much for all the hard work given by council employees during the worst weather that we have experienced for many years.

The gritting of the roads and the rubbish clearance far exceeded the service in other boroughs.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful postal service, who never missed a day's delivery, trudging and slipping on the snow and ice.
