IT is interesting to note that less than a month ago the potholes near the traffic lights at the Worcester Road end of Graham Road, Malvern, were being repaired.

Last weekend, the temporary traffic lights were back in place while no doubt the very same chaps tore up and resurfaced the road.

Is it any wonder the plight of council staff in this climate of money-saving causes raised eyebrows at best, and incredulous laughter at worst?

Organising 'nights out' at breweries springs to mind.
