Last July I had a request from the Saxon Gate Community Association for a bus shelter outside the Defra offices in Southgate Street. I duly asked St Edmundsbury, and was pleasantly surprised when their very helpful Highways Maintenance Engineer, Andrew Tipple, did not rule it out but said he would see what could be done.
I was even more surprised when he later said one could be installed, subject to the conditions of the Conservation Officer. On further enquiry I was delighted when this was confirmed, but sceptical when a date of "mid November" was given.
Today I was stunned when I met a resident in town who said "Thank you for our new bus shelter".
Well done Andrew and all others involved in this little triumph.
