Report it properly

If you’ve just scanned a QR code on our REPORT IT PROPERLY postcard – Welcome.

There’s lots of useful links on this page on how to report various issues.  (More than we could squeeze on the postcard!)

The postcard was prepared and printed by VANEL as part of the ongoing Neighbourhood Networking programme.  Neighbourhood Networking is supported by various funders including The National Lottery; Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner; Big Local North Cleethorpes; various Ward Councillor funding (South ward thank you).  Further information contact Karl Elliott.
