Although we like to know where the problems are, and will always try and support our parishioners in trying to get them fixed, sadly only Slough Borough Council have the remit and responsibility to deal with highway issues. So if you have any concern about the state of the pavements, potholes in the road, fly tipping or drainage issues on the highways please report it directly to Slough Borough Council via their website or by using the website ‘Fix my Street’, the link is below. If you are not able to do this yourself then please get in touch and we will do this for you.
