Texts are charged at your network’s standard rate.

If we can text you an answer to your question, we will.  However if the answer is complex we will call you back on the phone that was used to send the text and explain the answer in more detail or leave you a voice message.

Text enquiries will be dealt with between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday, text enquiries sent outside these hours will be dealt with as soon as possible the next day.

Text enquiries are useful for reporting or requesting less complex things such as potholes, opening times etc. More complex enquiries can be sent using our Contact Us form or by calling our customer service centre (numbers below)
