Tea: milk, one sugar

What a encouraging experience I had today of our local water suppliers (or 'water board' in old English).

We stepped out the house at about 9 am on our way to church, and notice a very heavy stream of water eminating from our water meter outside the front boundary. On returning from church a couple of hours later, and noting it still churning out, I phoned the water board.

Within 30 minutes somone was on-site (see photo), and within another 40 minutes, a gang were digging a hole and fixed the problem and tidied up in 30 minutes flat.

Seriously good service. And all for a phone call, a mug of tea (and the water bills of course).
