  • Dear Richard White , Thank you for your enquiry regarding the recent micro asphalt works that were carried out in Orchard Street, Daventry. We can now confirm that these works have now been completed. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

  • Hi, I received an update and went to visit this hydrant and it has not been fixed! The address seems to be confused with one in Daventry - Although someone has definitely cut the tarmac it is still inoperable. Please can someone go back out and sort this issue ASAP so we can use the hydrant? Thanks
