Our friends at My Society have been in touch with us this afternoon to tell us about their new campaign for Fix My Street.
Fix Before The Freeze
Fix Before The Freeze or #FB4TF if you want to #tag it, is a really simple campaign that everyone can get involved in. All you need to do is, on your journey home tonight check things like street lights, broken pavements and pot-holes then use Fix My Street to report them to your local council.
Reporting a broken street light may save someone being injured by a car or even from being mugged.
Pot-holes and broken pavements will only get worse once we start getting freezing nights so take five minutes to report them now before they get any worse.
All you need to do to report any problems you see on your way home or while you are out and about is go to http://www.fixmystreet.com/ fill in a few details and press send. If you can get a picture with your phone you can add this to the report to make it even easier for the council to find the problem you are reporting.
If you could promote #FB4TF in your local community and networks that would be great, My Society have produced some downloadable badges and flyers that you can use on your sites or print off.
Away from Talk About Local I take photos, fly my quadcopter and walk my two Beagles.
If I'm not doing any of the above then you'll find me volunteering at my local RNLI station as a press officer.
