Questions About Rosie

Rosie is a campaigning rubber duck who is calling for the pot holes and road defects of Northamptonshire to be repaired!

She will have her photograph taken in pot holes whenever she comes across a problem and make a report to Northamptonshire County Council’s Highways Department before posting her photos on social media to highlight the problem and to attempt to keep the pressure on the council to act.

Labour Councillor Mick Scrimshaw actually got the idea from a guy in Surrey doing something similar on Twitter in response to a fellow cyclist being killed after riding into a pothole and crashing, so even though using Rosie to highlight the ongoing issue about the state of our local roads is in some ways a bit of fun, there is very much a serious side to it.

You can follow Rosie here on this website – www.KetteringLabourParty.org/Rosie – or by searching for the hashtag #RosieRoadRepairs on Facebook and Twitter.

You can report a pothole via Northamptonshire County Council’s Street Doctor at www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/en/councilservices/Transport/roads/streetdoctor/Pages/Step1.aspx
