Living in the ward I represent means that I’m out and about a lot and am able to see first hand many of the problems that local residents contact me about. However, I will say that I don’t notice everything and that’s why I really value people’s emails and the input of our Community Safety Warden Garry Jones.
I often see Garry at meetings but in November I made the decision to go out on a walk with him around a section of the ward every 4 to 6 weeks. Thursday this week was one of those walks.
I find that as we walk and chat it’s a great opportunity for us to catch up on any local concerns that I have missed and be updated on some of the behind the scenes work that he, the local police and other council departments are doing. On Thursday we walked around the bottom half of Bellields (our previous walk was around Weyfield) looking at the state of the roads, parking along the Stoughton Road and some other concerns that had been raised with each of us by residents. As part of it I took a number of photos which I will be using to show council officers some of the issues that need addressing.
With Friday being my day off with Reuben my two-year old son I’ll be getting on to following this walk up on Monday and hope that I’ll be able to update you soon on the issues that I raise.
…don’t forget if you’re out and about and spot something you think that needs action drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 830157 and leave a message (I pick them up every day and aim to call back the next day).Leave a comment
