|"Please would you forward this email to the team who worked on Sunday resurfacing the road outside our house in Corve Street on Sunday. I was not there but my husband said they all worked incredibly hard. The new road surface is excellent and the cars are noticeably quieter going past the house. Please thank them all and let them know how impressed we are by the result."|
|"The resurfacing and ditching works in Mill Green, Hinstock are a great improvement and a credit to you and the council. The same applies to Hatton Road, Hinstock, carried out a few months ago."|
|"Thank you to the Street Works Central team for fixing the paving on the footpath leading to 2 Brunel Way. It was a real trip hazard, and your action is much appreciated."|
|A resident from the Trefonen area would like to say that the gritting lorries do an amazing job.|
|A customer would like to thank the Street Scene South team for cleaning her road in Church Stretton yesterday as they did a great job.|
|A customer visited Ludlow on Friday 22 February and used a pay and display car park. He wants to say how impressed he is with the new machines. As he put the money in it gave him the finish time pro rata based on the monetary coins he had available. Where he lives in Worcester if you put more money in you do not get any change and only get the hour. Bravo Shropshire and Worcester City can learn from you.|

|"We're thrilled with the new road (Princess Drive). The workforce did a super job."|
|I would like to say a huge thank you to Shropshire Council and I'm sure I speak for all my fellow neighbours. For the past 12 months we have had to navigate the terrible condition our road had fallen into.You wouldn't believe how we all felt when we recieved the news that we were getting a totally resurfaced road,not just a patching up. Well done Highways Department. You have done an amazing job. Many thanks.

Comments for September 2019
|Dear Soulla, today you were very kind to me and I cannot thank you enough for your help. A lot of technical things, dealing with all the different authorities, and the internet technology have been the most difficult for me. Sometimes, just sometimes, a stranger is extra helpful as you were today and it will never be forgotten so many thanks and best wishes to you.|

|A resident in Trefonen reported her neighbour's wall collapsing onto the road. I rang the highways emergency number and soon received a call back from Martin Nee. Within an hour, a team were out on site, ensuring the wall and highway where safe. Hugely impressed. Thank you to all involved.|
