  • To whom it may concern,

    I’m the business owner of acropolis Greek taverna. There is a manhole outside my restaurant which has been reported since January but yet anything has been done to fix it.

    The manhole makes a loud noise every time anything goes over it and it’s effective my business.

    I would be grateful if this issue can be resolved immediately as my customers aren’t enjoying their meal and it’s effecting trading.

    Kind regards
